  Giving for Good: Thank you for your Support of CHA

Why CHA?

Because health care is a universal need

Good health is important to everyone, regardless of age, language or socioeconomic status. But barriers are everywhere - making it hard for many people to achieve better health without a helping hand.

That's where we come in.

CHA is a leading Massachusetts healthcare system, a safety net teaching hospital and a national advocate for health equity. We focus on the whole person - from Harvard professors to the homeless - by delivering the expert primary care, behavioral health, specialty care and hospital services that people need most during their lives.

We treat people, provide essential support, and through some very special community programs, improve the health status of the entire Boston region.

But we can't do it alone.
