Mission & Vision


"If you are one of those whose special contributions can help make the difference between adequate and exceptional choices in healthcare for you, your family and your neighbors, we invite you to become a partner in our efforts. Our mission is as compelling as it is bold - to build and sustain a model not-for-profit healthcare system that is owned and governed by all of us who reside right here on Massachusetts' North Shore." 

Susan Healey Payson, Senior Vice President of Philanthropy


A Message from Susan Healey Payson 

Welcome to our website! We are glad to have you. 

The mission of the Development Office is to build philanthropic support for Northeast Health System and all of its affiliated not-for-profit organizations which include acute care hospitals, behavioral health and psychiatric health entities, and skilled nursing and residential facilities. The comprehensiveness, distribution and depth of our healthcare programs are unequalled in Massachusetts. 

As Northeast Health System anticipates future needs, its board and senior medical and executive leadership identify key strategic areas on which to focus its resources. As the plan evolves, leadership develops detailed objectives for each strategic area, including program and service enhancements, and where necessary, major capital improvements and facility renovations. 

Please take a moment and visit our pages, Giving Opportunities and the What Your Gift Supports, to see what area of Northeast Health System you would like to support. Then, visit our Ways To Give page to see how to make your gift and determine which gift club you would like to join. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or any member of our staff. We are here to help you make the decision in giving that works best for you, your family, or your company.
