Our Community Stories
UMass Memorial Health was created to be many things, to serve many needs. At the core of our mission has been the charge to provide Central Massachusetts with outstanding medical care and to make that care available to all, regardless of ability to pay. But, as invaluable as this anchor mission is, the role we play in the community is much greater. We are a major driver of the economic health of our community through the jobs we provide and the local businesses we support. We are committed to ensuring opportunity, equality, inclusion and access to basic human needs like food, housing, education and other social determinants of health.
This is our purpose, our reason for being—made possible by the people of UMass Memorial Health and their relentless pursuit of healing in all its forms.
We work with our local partners to address the triggers of pediatric asthma.
We partner with the Regional Environmental Council to promote urban agriculture.
We partner with the Worcester Public Schools to bring smiles to children's faces.
