The 2018 Massachusetts Attorney General’s Community Benefits Guidelines for Non-Profit Hospitals clearly states that social conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age play a key role in determining health outcomes and health disparities.  Accordingly, effective Community Benefits programs are critical in addressing unmet public health needs and promoting health equity.   Cape Cod Healthcare Community Benefits has addressed this in the 2020-2022 Community Health Needs Assessment Strategic Implementation Plan as a collaborative partnership approach with the Cape Cod community over the next three years.

The  FY20 -22 CHNA Report and Strategic Implementation Plan will be released at the end of September 2019, please click here or visit for other information related to the FY20 strategic grant process.
