Baystate Health – Greenfield, MA

Full / Part Time: Full-Time
Location: Greenfield, Massachusetts

Baystate Health, a leading not-for-profit integrated health system, is transforming the delivery of health care to the communities it serves. Baystate Health (BH) is one of New Englands leading and largest integrated healthcare systems, serving more than ****93,****93 people throughout Western Massachusetts. With about ****93,****93 employees, a 1,****93-member medical staff, and net patient service revenue of more than $2.3 billion, this dynamic and growing system includes an academic medical center, a childrens hospital and three community hospitals. It also includes a large multispecialty group, (Baystate Medical Practices), Baystate Home Health, Baystate Reference Laboratories, and Health New England, a ****93,****93-member health insurance company.

The mission of Baystate Health is to improve the health of the people in our communities every day, with quality and compassion. For over ****93 years, Baystate has been a keystone of Western Massachusetts as it has evolved, grown, and emerged as one of the highest quality and most effective health care providers in the nation. Baystate Health was named a top ****93 Health System in the country by Thompson Reuters; and is a PRC National Excellence in Healthcare Award Winner. Most recently US News and World Report ranked Baystate Medical Center and Massachusetts General Hospital as the only two hospitals in Massachusetts to achieve top quality ranking for five common procedures and conditions such as total joint replacement and congestive heart failure.

Baystate Health believes that the advancement of knowledge, through education and research, is essential to its mission of improving the health of the communities it serves. Baystate Medical Center has major programs in postgraduate medical education with residencies in Medicine, Surgery, Anesthesiology, Radiology, Pathology, OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Medicine-Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, and Psychiatry; along with ****93 fellowship programs.

Baystate Health is a forward-thinking organization. With impressive size, scope, and expertise, Baystate Health is the longtime market leader for health care services in western Massachusetts and is financially solid. However, as in most regions of the country, the healthcare landscape in western Massachusetts has shifted as a result of ever-increasing economic pressures and corresponding provider consolidation. Baystate Health is committed to its position as the key provider of tertiary level medical services to the people of Western Massachusetts. At the same time, Baystate Health has embraced a broader mission of promoting better health for the communities it serves and reducing health disparities. Baystate Health is committed to the provision of high value health care and is transforming how it delivers care and educates the next generation of physicians. One example of this is TechSpring, Baystate Healths digital health care laboratory in downtown Springfield. Founded in June ****93, TechSpring works with entrepreneurs on ways that health care technology can fade into the background and take up less time.

In June ****93, Baystate Health established a new partnership with the UMass Medical School to develop a new regional clinical campus in Springfield, known as the University of Massachusetts Medical School Baystate (UMMS-Baystate). UMMS-Baystate is now home to UMMS four-year Population-based Urban and Rural Community Health (PURCH) track, which welcomed its inaugural class of ****93 medical students in Autumn ****93. Through this innovative program, the three institutions are partnering to strengthen the pipeline of new primary care physicians for the future in Western Massachusetts. These three institutions have also collaborated to create the Institute for Healthcare Delivery & Population Science, to generate and apply new knowledge to transform health care delivery and population health in support of Baystate Healths strategic goals. The Institute conducts health services research projects in partnership with local, regional, and national stakeholders.

Baystate Franklin Medical Center (BFMC), located in Greenfield, MA, is an ****93-bed community hospital that joined Baystate Health in ****93. The hospital boasts a state-of-the-art surgical center and a new endoscopy center that opened in August ****93.
