CCC at Home in New Location

Commonwealth Community Care has moved into their new office space at 30 Northampton Street in Boston.  The ground floor facility houses a primary care office specially designed to serve people with disabilities.  With extra large exam rooms, overhead lifts to assist with transfer of patients to hi-lo adjustable exam tables, and a scale to weigh people in wheelchairs, the clinical area is well-suited to CCC’s specialized primary care practice.  In addition, a rehab room provides the space and equipment for CCC’s PT/OT staff to fit and adjust adaptive equipment.  The second floor provides administrative space for CCC’s clinicians and support staff.  There is ample parking in front of the building for visitors.

Construction begins on our new Boston office

Construction has begun on Commonwealth Community Care’s new Boston primary care office at 30 Northampton Street, with a planned completion date of September 2015.  The Northampton Street location is the result of a long search for a new home for CCC Boston that will allow our growing health care practice to remain in the South End community, close to Boston Medical Center, and close to the people we serve.  With the support of Commonwealth Care Alliance and in collaboration with building owners Majon Realty Corp. and their contractor, Pimentel Construction, CCC will be moving later this year into the completely renovated, fully accessible 15,000 square foot space, which includes primary offices, a physical therapy room, meeting rooms, and administrative space for our staff.  Look for more announcements as we get closer to the move date. ask siri

CMMI Program Pairs Enhanced Care Management with Technology Aids

Commonwealth Community Care and Commonwealth Care Alliance are participating in a new program designed to improve the health of persons needing intensive health management.  The outreach program is funded through a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation grant and aims to provide better care to individuals while lowering health care costs.  Program participants include people with chronic medical illnesses such as hypertension, diabetes and COPD, and co-existing psychiatric illnesses.  A team of four Commonwealth Community Care nurse practitioners will focus on the primary care needs of clients from Vinfen, Bay Cove Human Services, North Suffolk Mental Health, and the Brookline Community Mental Health Center, partnering with health outreach workers and community based support teams from those agencies.  Program participants will also be encouraged to use “Health Buddy,” an electronic tool developed by Bosch to aid in patient self-management.  Dartmouth College will analyze data generated from the program to assess the effectiveness of the team’s efforts, based on measurable clinical outcomes, and decreased Emergency Department and hospital utilization. The program launched in December 2012 adn will continue for three years.

Boston’s Community Medical Group becomes Commonwealth Community Care

With the launch of our new website, Boston’s Community Medical Group is officially renamed Commonwealth Community Care. Since 1988, Boston’s Community Medical Group (known as BCMG) has built a reputation for excellence in care for people with disabilities. To support the expansion of these services to new parts of the state, BCMG needed a name that would reflect and communicate the core values, unique focus, and mission of the clinical group, and that would resonate with the consumers we serve. Our Board of Directors selected Commonwealth Community Care to connect us to our parent organization, Commonwealth Care Alliance; to reflect our commitment to promoting independence and enhancing people’s ability to live in the community of their choice; and to reflect a more holistic approach to wellness beyond pure medical care and reflect the broad scope of our interdisciplinary teams. Commonwealth Community Care retains the promise of BCMG to be “Focused on your health. Committed to your independence.”
