Partners HealthCare is committed to working with community residents and organizations to make measurable, sustainable improvements in the health status of underserved populations.
Through initiatives that include access to health care, prevention, and workforce development, Partners and its hospitals are making a difference in the communities in which we live and work.
The Bank of America Loan Repayment Program is an example of Partners initiatives that have a positive impact in our communities. The video to the right tells the story of how the Bank of America Loan Repayment program has helped the Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center provide care to the community.
In early 2011, the Kraft Family announced a $20M gift to support Partners in its goal of ensuring that underserved patients have access to high quality care in their communities. The Kraft Family National Center for Leadership and Training in Community Health will improve access to the neediest people in our communities – not only in Massachusetts but throughout New England and across the United States.

Bank of America Loan Repayment Program
In 2007, a $5M grant from Bank of America launched a loan repayment program for primary care physicians and nurse practitioners who commit to working at a community health center. A goal of the program is to enhance access to health care. Partners Healthcare committed more than $1.25M to this effort.
