Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital (BWFH) strives to attain excellence in patient care services, provided in a learning environment with dignity, compassion and respect. We are dedicated to improving the health and well-being of residents from the areas we serve through our award winning Community Health and Wellness Program. The program serves over 60,000 men, women, children and elderly each year through a wide variety of preventive health education, free health screenings, school partnerships and community outreach.
We have long recognized our responsibility to not only treat illness, but to help prevent disease and the factors that precipitate disease. Through the numerous health partnerships and initiatives that have developed over the years, BWFH works with neighbors to identify and address important community needs and concerns.
Based on the MA Attorney General's guidelines, the goals in the Community Health and Wellness plan are based on an analysis of public health data and needs, community input and collaborative partnerships. Below is a working draft outline of the plan:
Food Insecurity, Healthy Eating and Active Living
Social Determinants of Health (Language, Poverty, Education, Access, and Youth Engagement)
