Community Benefits Report
We take our responsibility to the island seriously, and report annually to the state Attorney General’s office with details of our charitable, volunteer and community-wide health initiatives. These efforts are outlined in our FY2016 Community Benefits Report and includes an in-depth look at the benefits we offer to Nantucket, such as our annual Health Fair, flu clinic, as well as our free health and wellness screenings.
Community Health Needs Assessment
The 2015 Nantucket Community Health Needs Assessment is part of Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s ongoing efforts to assess the health needs of the island community. This effort included focus groups with the Healthy Community Collaborative and Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s Patient & Family Advisory Council, as well as a Quality of Life survey that was distributed widely throughout the community.
