Affiliations and Partnerships

CHA is a leader in providing essential health services to all members of the community and is committed to offering patients the highest quality care and the best possible experience.

Clinical Care

CHA is proud to be affiliated with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), one of the nation's preeminent academic medical centers. Adult patients who need advanced specialty or high acuity hospital care have direct access to the outstanding physicians and facilities of BIDMC. Learn more about BIDMC at

CHA and BIDMC are working together to expand access to care in local communities in order to offer convenient, high quality services, both in and out of the hospital setting. Our patients will have access to all the care they need - primary care, specialty care, hospital care, behavioral health, and emergency care. To make it easy, CHA and BIDMC have implemented a shared medical record that is available to our health care providers through a secure electronic link. This ability to share information allows providers in both institutions to coordinate care and provide the best treatment for each patient. This means patients can focus on getting well instead of making appointments and repeating tests.

Children who need advanced specialty care have access to our partners at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children.  

Academic Affiliations

CHA is the only hospital in the nation affiliated with Harvard Medical School, T.H. Chan Harvard School of Public Health, Harvard School of Dental Medicine and the Tufts University School of Medicine. This allows us to offer the finest opportunities for medical students and trainees. We are also proud of our teaching partnerships in Nursing, Pharmacy and other fields.
