South Shore Health System and Brigham Health Announce Partnership to Bring Medical Center to Quincy

South Shore Health System (SSHS), a member of The New England Council, has announced that it will be partnering with Brigham Health in the construction and operation of a medical building in downtown Quincy. Brigham Health is part of Partners HealthCare, also a Council member.  This project marks the latest in a series of collaborative initiatives between the two organizations.

The new facility will be constructed as part of a redevelopment program in downtown Quincy. While no specific plans for the medical building’s use have been released, there is talk that it will offer some outpatient surgical services and ambulatory care. In addition to this joint facility, SHSS also intends to open a primary care practice in the summer of 2019.

Dr. Gene E. Greene, president and CEO of South Shore Health System, commented, “As the leading community healthcare provider on the South Shore, we must meet our patients and families where they need us the most – in their community and close to home.”

“This collaboration builds on our longstanding clinical partnership with South Shore Health System to ensure that the expert specialty care we provide in oncology, neurology, surgery and women’s health is accessible in the community,” said Dr. Betsy Nabel, president of Brigham Health.

The New England Council praises the collaborative efforts of these two member hospitals to provide the highest standard of medical care, and to reinvigorate the community of downtown Quincy.
