At Baystate Health, our purpose is to provide the best in patient care every day. From delivering newborn babies into the world and conducting life-saving surgeries to helping a patient manage chronic illness or receive hospice care, your health and well-being are at the forefront of our minds. However, as we treat patients in the here and now, we are also looking ahead to pave the way for a brighter—and healthier—future. The reality is that treating patients isn’t always enough to keep them well. Global factors like climate change, human rights crises, and working conditions have a broad impact on health and health equity, and healthcare institutions like Baystate Health, have an important role to play in minimizing these factors. By putting our purpose at the core of what we do, Baystate Health has initiated an ingrained and integrated response across the entire health system. We have a duty to not only be a point of care within our own walls but to be good global citizens and stewards of the best interests of the communities we serve. It is a profound calling, but one that we are meeting head-on. To best measure our success, we are utilizing three areas of impact—Environmental Impact, Social Impact, and Governance Impact. These areas focus on the environment and sustainability; charity, health equity, and giving back; and corporate responsibility.
