Southcoast Health CARES
At Southcoast Health, we are committed to our mission of providing healthcare that extends beyond direct patient care. We know that the environment in which we live, work, play, and age is the greatest indicator of health and overall wellness. Join your neighbors, friends, and fellow community members in giving back by helping clean up the streets and neighborhoods in our local community!

Patient safety is always a top priority at Southcoast Health, and with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, this vital element of healthcare became even more important.
Our Southcoast Health Wellness Van will be onsite and available to administer vaccinations to those who would like one. We will be offering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to individuals that are 18 years or older. No appointment is necessary.
