Westerly Hospital Community Benefits 2022 

Every year, as part of our vital mission to promote health and wellness throughout the Greater Westerly region, Westerly Hospital sponsors, develops and participates in a wide variety of community-based programs and services. During 2022, WH invested $9.2 million in financial and in-kind contributions through three wide-ranging programs: Guaranteeing Access to Care; Advancing Careers in Health Care; and Promoting Health & Wellness. We are proud to summarize those efforts in the annual Community Benefit Report.

Today’s health care opens to a world of possibilities. Our vision is to bring all that health care offers to our communities, building a brighter, healthier future for everyone. For more than 95 years, Westerly Hospital has not only served the medical needs of the community but also pioneered advances in medicine and trained thousands of healthcare professionals.
