Voice Your Community Health Needs

Adapted from a Baystate Franklin Medical Center (BFMC) press release:

Baystate Franklin Medical Center’s Community Benefits Advisory Council (CBAC) will host a “Community Listening Session”, focusing on community health needs, on Tuesday, June 7th, from 3PM to 5PM, in the John Olver Transit Center (12 Olive Street), 1st floor meeting room.  The event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served.

CBAC is a group of hospital employees and community representatives charged with guiding BFMC’s community benefits priorities and process.  Every 3 years, hospitals conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) for the area they serve.  The CBAC is in the process of completing the 2016 assessment and would like to share preliminary findings with the public so that members of our community can help determine any key health issues the CBAC might have missed.

In addition to BFMC, this listening session is hosted by CBAC member organizations The Opioid Task Force, Life Path, Community Action, Franklin Regional Council of Governments (FRCOG), the Recover Project, UMASS School of Public Health, Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Community Health Center of Franklin County, and the Greenfield Health Department.

For those driving to the event, please do not park at the transit center because onsite parking is only for 30 minutes.  Please use a nearby parking lot or metered parking on Bank Row or Main Street.

For more information about the Community Health Needs Discussion, contact Baystate Health’s Office of Public Health and Community Relations at (413) 794-1016 or email
