Winchester Hospital Joins with Local Businesses

Over 20 local businesses attended the Business Partners Program breakfast at Winchester Hospital this past spring and listened as President and CEO Kevin Smith discussed the changing health care landscape and the Hospital’s future plans.

The Business Partners Program, launched in 2011 as a way to encourage businesses to help support Winchester Hospital, brings leaders in the business community and the hospital together to consider, discuss and build collaborative relationships that strengthen and benefit our communities.

Through a series of breakfast meetings on topics ranging from the sweeping changes in health care reform to the latest developments in cancer research, members of the Business Partners Program have the opportunity to share their expertise while helping to ensure that Winchester Hospital’s patients continue to have access to the highest quality care, the latest medical technology and essential wellness and prevention programs.

“The contribution of these businesses to the program ensures that Winchester Hospital patients continue to have access to the highest quality care, the latest medical equipment and essential wellness and prevention programs,” Smith said.

Business Partners receive special recognition and acknowledgement that underscore their positive affiliation with Winchester Hospital. Additional benefits include on-site wellness lectures and opportunities to participate in a rewarding volunteer experience.

The next Business Partners’ breakfast will take place on Thursday, October 4. For more information or to become a business partner, please call Winchester Hospital Foundation at 781-756-2183 or e-mail Bridget Gallagher at bgallagher@winhosp.org.
