South Shore Hospital

South Shore Hospital is Southeastern Massachusetts's leading provider of emergency, acute and outpatient care. We are the first and only verified and designated Level II Trauma Center south of Boston, including the Cape and Islands. We are also one of only three hospitals in Massachusetts with a Level II license.

South Shore Hospital is consistently recognized for quality of care including being recognized as a Top General Hospital by the Leapfrog Group. Our hospital has also been recognized as part of the American Nurse Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program which recognizes healthcare organizations that demonstrate excellence in nursing services—a distinction only eight percent of US hospital achieve.

We accept nearly every major health insurance plan, as do the individual members of our medical staff. Because plan names and benefits change frequently, call your insurer to learn the details of your plan's benefits. If you have any questions about your healthcare bills, contact our patient accounts department at 800-486-1915. For questions about pricing, call our Pricing Estimation Line at 781-624-3424.
