Building Healthier Communities
What Southcoast’s Community Benefits Program means to our communities
As a not-for-profit health system, Southcoast Health annually provides the communities we serve with millions of dollars in free care and benefits. In 2015, that amounted to $18.8 million for our region.
The Southcoast Community Benefits Program is dedicated to improving access to healthcare and wellness programs for those who might otherwise do without through these and many other initiatives:
- Free screenings, education, immunizations and other health services via the Southcoast Wellness Van
- Pregnancy prevention and youth risk behavior programs through RAPPP (Responsible Attitudes toward Pregnancy, Parenting and Prevention)
- Cancer screening and education
- Helping individuals enroll in health insurance
