Community Partnerships

St. Joseph Hospital shares the vision of health for our community with a growing list of community partners.

The Greater Nashua Healthy Community Collaborative

The Greater Nashua Healthy Community Collaborative is working to increase awareness and education about the importance of preventive medicine and health screenings, particularly for heart disease and peripheral vascular disease (PVD). Screening can help identify potential problems early, such as high cholesterol or high blood sugar (diabetes), so they can be treated before they become more serious and potentially lead to a heart attack, stroke or other traumatic event. The Collaborative has also helped to establish a prescription assistance program to help their clients to obtain prescription medications.

Collaborative members include healthcare organizations, human service providers, and public agencies that come together on a regular basis to address needs that have been identified by the 2014 Community Health Assessment of Greater Nashua.

The Center serves as a focal point for grassroots efforts toward community education and outreach about health and wellness. Milette Manor, located at 72 Vine Street, provides low-income housing for elderly residents who have access to the Center for Wellness programs, screenings, and equipment.
