The Blue Hills Community Health Alliance (CHNA 20) is one of 27 Community Health Network Areas established by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) in an effort to combat health disparities in communities statewide through collaborative, sustainable models.
CHNA 20 is a regional coalition dedicated to building healthier communities by engaging a wide range of stakeholders to identify and address the health needs of residents. Our funding is supplied through the MDPH Determination of Need (DoN) Factor 9 Community Health Initiatives Policies and Procedures. Our current DoN Funders include: Dana—Farber Cancer Institute, South Shore Hospital, and Steward Health Care.
CHNA 20's governance is supported by a dedicated staff and volunteer Steering Committee. Our service area includes the 13 towns of Braintree, Canton, Cohasset, Hingham, Hull, Milton, Norwell, Norwood, Quincy, Randolph, Scituate, Sharon and Weymouth.
Current member organizations include broad representation from a variety of organizations throughout our communities, including local boards of health, community coalitions and agencies, grassroots organizations, representatives from local government, law enforcement agencies, faith-based organizations and more.
