Our Commitment to a Healthier Community
At New England Baptist Hospital, we’re committed to improving the health and well-being of residents within our Community Benefits Service Area (CBSA). Through our Community Benefits Department, we work in collaboration with the area’s residents and key community health stakeholders to address the health needs and priorities identified by this assessment.
New England Baptist Hospital’s Community Benefits Service Area includes: Mission Hill/ Roxbury, Brookline, Chestnut Hill and Dedham.
Led by the Community Benefits Advisory Committee (CBAC), we strive to address the most pressing health needs in each community based on the most recent Community Health Needs Assessment.
Community Health Needs Assessment Guiding Principles

- Engagement: Intentionally reach out to and interact with often overlooked populations, including, but not limited to, people impacted by trauma, people with disabilities, communities most impacted by inequities, and others
- Capacity Building: Build community cohesion and capacity by co-leading Community Listening sessions and training residents on facilitation
- Intentionality: Be deliberate in our engagement and our request and use of data and information; be purposeful and work collaboratively to identify and leverage resources for maximum benefit
- Individuals with disabilities

- Racially, ethnically, and linguistically diverse populations
