About Signature Healthcare

Signature Healthcare is Southeastern Massachusetts’ premier local provider of quality, personalized medical services.

In 2008, Signature Healthcare was formed to solidify the affiliation between Brockton Hospital and a network of community providers, resulting in the region’s most extensive integrated healthcare system offering a continuum of care for patients, with all clinicians working from a single electronic medical record, a referral network, and operational efficiencies.

Today, Signature Healthcare is a not-for-profit, integrated healthcare system providing a wide range of services to patients of all ages throughout Southeastern Massachusetts. We are comprised of the award-winning Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital, Signature Medical Group (SMG), a multi-specialty physician group of more than 150 physicians practicing in 16 ambulatory locations, and the Brockton Hospital School of Nursing.

Since the February 7, 2023, 10-alarm fire, Signature Healthcare is back stronger and better than ever while remaining committed to serving our patients and community for many years to come. We are one of the only not-for-profit community-based integrated healthcare systems in Southeastern MA, providing a full range of high-quality primary care, specialty care, hospital care, and related ancillary services on a coordinated basis delivered at a low cost.

We are proud of our history serving Southeastern Massachusetts and are excited to continue our mission of providing high-quality, affordable healthcare to all.

Transforming the Way Healthcare is Delivered

At Signature Healthcare, we are transforming how healthcare is delivered by providing integrated care to our patients. We bring together hospitals, healthcare providers, and community medical offices to create a seamless patient experience. This approach improves the quality of care, reduces costs, and makes it easier for patients to get the care they need.

What is an Integrated Healthcare System?

An integrated healthcare system is a network of medical professionals working to provide patients with coordinated care through a single point of contact. Providers from different offices can easily share information about a patient’s medical history and collaborate on treatment plans. This approach ensures that patients receive the right care at the right time, resulting in better patient outcomes such as fewer complications and shorter hospital stays.

Benefits of an Integrated Healthcare System

  • Easily find providers who are accepting new patients in convenient locations.
  • Focused on prevention: We offer a variety of preventive services, such as vaccinations, screenings, and counseling.
  • Improved population health by addressing the social determinants of health.
