HNEF evaluation team gets $450,000 to study hospital's community investments

Concerned about the social determinants of health and of housing in particular, Boston Medical Center (BMC) – an HNEF I investor – recently announced its $6.5 million investment to support a range of local housing initiatives, including funding for HNEF to study the hospital’s community investments.

Announcing the new initiative, BMC’s President and CEO Kate Walsh said, “Too often, we prescribe medicine to a family, when what they need just as much for long-term health is a prescription for stable housing. This investment remedies that and saves cost to the health care system in the process.”
