Learn more about some of our specific community health programs and services:

  • Kick Butts Tobacco-Free Campaign. Norwood Hospital partners every year with an area middle school to present Kick Butts Day to all of the school's students. Hospital staff, volunteers and members of the Better Breathers Support Group provide interactive games in a carnival-like atmosphere designed to persuade students to refrain from using tobacco products. Norwood Hospital has impacted more than 6,000 students since the inception of the program eight years ago.
  • Continue™ Senior Suppers. Norwood Hospital's senior suppers are offered Monday through Friday evenings for adults ages 55 and older. The cost is $5.50 per person and each senior receives a well-balanced meal. These meals provide a caring atmosphere, health education and socialization for those who attend.
  • Cardiovascular Awareness Program. In an effort to decrease mortality and hospitalizations, Norwood Hospital’s Cardiovascular Awareness Program provides SimLab intubation training for area emergency medical technicians/paramedics and emergency medical control staff. In addition, the Cardiovascular Awareness Program educates community members about cardiovascular disease through lectures, seminars, support groups and screenings.
