Why does healthcare continually rank as a top concern among Americans? Because at some point we all get sick.
Whether you’ve sprained your ankle and gone to an urgent care center or are seeking support for a loved one with a potentially life-threatening illness, you deserve to receive exceptional care in your community. And you shouldn’t have to worry about your insurance coverage in your moment of need.
When the time comes that you or someone in your family needs care, many of you will turn to Southcoast Health. As a community health system, we’ve invested time and time again to strengthen and expand our services, enabling patients to receive world-class care close to home. Some of our most recent investments include the Lash Heart and Vascular Center at Charlton Memorial, a Rapid Assessment Zone at the St. Luke’s Emergency Department, seven Urgent Care centers that include “get in line online” technology to reduce wait times, two cancer centers and a full renovation of our Stoico/FIRSTFED Maternity Center at St. Luke’s.
At present, Southcoast Health has more than 700 care providers and 75 locations in its affiliated network, providing care and service to hundreds of thousands of southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island residents.
Every day we work to fulfill our promise to you, to our patients and to their families, that you do not have to travel out of the South Coast region for sophisticated and innovative procedures. In acknowledgement of the world-class care we deliver in your backyard, Southcoast was the only community and non-teaching hospital in Massachusetts named to Newsweek’s inaugural list of the World’s Best Hospitals 2019.
