Health Insurance and Financial Counseling Enrollment
Initiative. Through this initiative, Carney Hospital takes
steps in ensuring that patients are receiving optimal help in
securing health care benefits and follow up for their medical
needs. By having the financial counseling department and
the community health advocate collaborate, patients that have
difficulty with the follow-through of securing health insurance
and follow up care will be given support to help them navigate
the process. The community health advocate will help
patients obtain needed documentation, pick up necessary
documentation from their homes and offer culturally competent
support through community leaders and interpreters.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). This collaboration
with local organizations and farms brings in fresh fruits and
vegetables through the use of farmers' markets and food
co-ops within the community.
Dorchester YMCA Partnership. Carney Hospital and the
Dorchester YMCA are collaborating to provide nutrition education
and youth empowerment to the Dorchester community through a Y
Weight! nutrition education program held at the Dorchester YMCA.
In addition, Carney physicians visit the YMCA, periodically, to
speak with youth members about a range of issues, including
sports medicine and sexual health.
