Member Organization

The Friends consists of individuals with special affinities to South Shore Health System. Involvement may be based upon a personal encounter or connection with the hospital, or simply a desire to involve oneself in the community.

These groups engage in various community programs, such as:

  • NICU Stroller Stroll
  • Hoedown for Hospice
  • Have a Heart Tennis Challenge
  • Educational Classes
  • Book Club
  • And many more...

The goal of these programs is to further the health and well-being of area families. Over the years, these programs have helped The Friends remain the single largest donor organization to South Shore Health System. Key hospital initiatives and continued funding could not be achieved without the participation of the men and women of The Friends. Their passion for improving community services and resources is what makes South Shore Hospital's important health care goals possible, as well as enabling the realization of future goals. That's where you come in. If you are passionate about making life and health care on the South Shore the finest it can be, then The Friends welcomes your involvement.

We encourage people like you to support the hospital through these special interests and initiatives. Other groups are always being formed. You can find our ten Friends Affinity Groups listed at left.  Please call 781-624-4170 if you have ideas or suggestions.

You are invited to learn more about The Friends by attending one of our meetings. One of the Friends will cheerfully meet you at the door. If you are interested in joining The Friends or would like more information, please call Membership Services at 781 624-4170, and start making a difference for your community - and for yourself.
