At the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, we are involved with the community outside the walls of our facilities as well as inside them. Our staff supports and is active in various community initiatives. We often work with community partners to present programs and events designed to raise awareness of rehabilitation needs as well as provide fun and enjoyment to all.

Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital – Boston
In 2012 and 2015, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital’s Center for Community Health Improvement (CCHI) undertook a community health assessment and community health improvement planning of Charlestown. The completed plan highlights four areas – education; substance abuse/mental health; access to care/autism; and cancer prevention and access to treatment – as priority issues in Charlestown. “Building a Healthier Charlestown” is a community-based coalition created to improve population health by building and/or enhancing the capacity of local collaboratives to develop and implement evidence-based approaches to address these areas of focus. To accomplish this goal, Building a Healthier Charlestown will fund five year grants for 2-4 partnerships located in or providing the majority (51%) of their services to individuals in Charlestown.

Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital - Cambridge
Spaulding Hospital Cambridge is located in Cambridge Massachusetts, but its community of patients knows no hard and fast borders. Given the highly specialized role we fulfill as a provider, our commitment to the communities we serve has traditionally been guided by the needs of our patient population rather than geography. We especially focus on those who are most vulnerable or face significant barriers to accessing care.

Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital – Cape Cod
In the spring and summer of 2016, Spaulding Cape Cod conducted a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to better understand the community health needs of residents of Cape Cod. Aspects of the survey were conducted in collaboration with Cape Cod Healthcare (the primary comprehensive health care provider on Cape Cod), which was conducting its CHNA at the same time. Spaulding Cape Cod is actively engaged with Cape Cod Healthcare and other providers to develop its implementation plan to address shared priority needs.
