Bristol County health centers receive community grants

Posted 6/30/14

BOSTON – Two Bristol County health centers are among 35 community organizations in Massachusetts receiving a share of $6 million in grants through the Partners for Community Health Excellence and Innovation program.

Partners for Community Health, an initiative of Neighborhood Health Plan, Partners HealthCare and the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers, was launched in 2012 to help community health centers reduce barriers to health care access.

“Community health centers play a critical role in caring for Massachusetts residents and our members,” said Neighborhood Health Plan President and CEO Deborah C. Enos. “The Excellence and Innovation grants will help CHCs develop state-of-the-art infrastructure and transform their operations as they continue serving the diverse needs of our communities in dynamic new ways.”

Among this year’s 14 competitive grant recipients are the Family HealthCare Center at SSTAR in Fall River and the Greater New Bedford Community Health Center.

To date, Partners has awarded more than $10 million to community health groups throughout the Bay State, and plans to award $90 million over the next 15 years to improve interactive health technology and data sharing among centers with the aim of lowering health care costs.
