CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA), an academic community health system serving Cambridge, Somerville and Boston’s metro-north region, held its annual Golf Invitational on Monday, August 7, at the Oakley Country Club in Watertown. The tournament successfully raised $147,000 to support patient experience of care initiatives, including the Sibling Support Program and services for patients recovering from addiction. CHA has raised more than $1 million to help fund projects and programming since the tournament’s inception over a decade ago, including upgrades to the Maternity Suite and Everett Hospital Emergency Department, strengthening digital communications with patients, and the purchase of video translation equipment to help ensure all patients understand their care.

“We truly appreciate the generosity and compassion of the Invitational’s participants and sponsors, which will help support key initiatives that benefit local residents and improve the overall health of the communities we serve,” said Mary Cassesso, President of the CHA Foundation and Chief Community Officer.

Top sponsors include Digital Federal Credit Union at the Presenting Sponsor level; Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Cataldo Ambulance, Health Plans, Inc., Professional Ambulance, SageView Advisory Group and Sodexo at the Silver level; and Anaesthesia Associates of Massachusetts, Bond Brothers, C & W Services, Cresa Boston, Care Dimensions, Image Technology Specialists and Winter Hill Bank at the Bronze level. Additional funds were also raised through auctions at the event.
