Cape Cod Healthcare Foundation

Supporting One of America's Top 15 Health Systems 

As a registered charity, our goal at Cape Cod Healthcare Foundation is to enhance the mission and vision of Cape Cod Healthcare by raising philanthropic revenue to fund the strategic priorities and margin of excellence as determined by System governance, administration and clinical leadership.

As the leading provider of healthcare services for this region, Cape Cod Healthcare is deeply committed to enhancing the health and well-being of the communities we serve. From building new facilities and expanding clinical programs to investing in the latest medical and information technology, our highly-skilled physicians, nurses, employees and volunteers share a strong commitment to delivering an exceptional healthcare experience to each and every patient who walks through our doors. In fact, it is this commitment to excellence that earned Cape Cod Healthcare recognition by Truven Health Analytics as one of the Top 15 Health Systems in the nation. As the only recipient awarded this distinction in New England, we know we are doing our job and taking good care of our community.

This remarkable achievement is a culmination of the profound growth and development we have experienced over the past decade. Thanks to $147 million in charitable gifts from our donors, we have together, transformed the delivery of care on Cape Cod. We are indebted to all those who have partnered with us to bring this community the most exemplary healthcare services available. Thank you, Cape Cod!
