CHA in the Community

Community Health is a Major Focus of our Work


A Comprehensive Approach.
Through our Department of Community Health Improvement and Cambridge Public Health Department, we have developed targeted programs that reduce health disparities and promote wellness, initiatives to improve overall community health, and collaborative research projects that tackle critical health issues and impact policy.

Volunteer Health Advisor (VHA) Team

CHA VHA TeamWhen we see patients in a clinical setting, we are often treating symptoms, rather than addressing the root causes of health issues. That's why we take a comprehensive approach to address broader health needs. We also provide a wide variety of community and public health programs to improve the lives of local residents.

Join the CHA Patient & Family Advisory Council

CHA has a Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) that helps our hospitals and health centers improve our service and care.

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement notes that patient-centered health care can be achieved when "the patient and their loved ones (are) an integral part of the care team who collaborate with health care professions in making clinical decisions."
