Community Outreach

The Attorney General’s Community Benefits Guidelines call upon hospitals to identify and respond to unmet community health needs by formalizing their approach to community benefits planning, collaborating with community representatives to identify and create programs that address those needs, and issuing annual reports on their efforts. 

Based on the 2015 Community Health Needs Assessment published by the Health Partnership of the Lower Merrimack Valley and Seacoast Area Region, research into programs and support in the community and collaboration from the Anna Jaques Community Benefits Advisory Committee, three-year efforts aim to address: cancer, obesity and substance use.
