Community Health at Mount Auburn Hospital
617- 499 - 5625

Mount Auburn Hospital (MAH) addresses the broad health issues in the community and provides community residents with a wide range of services consistent with our community health mission statement:

Mount Auburn Hospital is committed to improving the health and wellbeing of community members by collaborating with community partners to reduce barriers to health, increase prevention and/or self management of chronic disease and increase the early detection of illness.  

The current Community Health Plan has been developed in response to both the Massachusetts Attorney General’s and Federal guidelines.

Pertinent assessment material was reviewed with community members including those affiliated with public health departments, community based organizations and with Community Health Network Areas (CHNA) with a focus on the steering committees of CHNAs 7, 15, 17, 18, and 20 as well as the those members who are part of the CHNA17 which serves Arlington, Belmont, Cambridge, Somerville, Waltham and Watertown.

Priorities for the Community Benefit plan were developed by reviewing the current programs and resources, information obtained from the Community Needs Assessment, input from CHNA steering committees and CHNA17 membership and considering the Attorney General’s recommended state wide priorities.  Recognizing that community benefit planning is ongoing and will change with continued community input the Mount Auburn Hospital Community Benefit plan will evolve.  Senior Management and the Board of Trustees are committed to assessing information and updates as needed.  Click here to view the most recent CHNA 17 report.

The mission of the Mount Auburn Hospital’s Regional Center for Healthy Communities (Metrowest) is to help communities realize their vision for a healthier place to live.  Click here to review the RCHC consultancy report for its work with local Community Health Network Areas.
