Boston Children's Hospital's approach to partnerships has been to develop solid, effective, and trusting relationships by supporting local organizations that share a similar vision. This approach is based on a few fundamental premises:
- far more can be achieved by working together than working alone.
- the health of children and families is directly affected by the health and vitality of the community in which they live.
- helping neighborhoods, and the city at large, improve their overall health requires open dialogue and being responsive to what communities need and want.
In working with community partners, the hospital seeks to be a good neighbor, health partner, and civic leader. The hospital's community commitments are directed at improving the infrastructure of organizations that care for children and families in the city by supporting community partners and working with them to make Boston a better place for children and families, and a more vibrant and livable city.
Children's is committed to continuing to work with its many valued partners to help ensure that Boston remains a great city to live, work, and play.
