CharterCARE Health Partners

CharterCARE Health Partners Logo

CharterCARE Health Partners is a coordinated regional care network comprised of two acute care hospitals, a large nursing home facility, a regional cancer center, a rehabilitation center, a community primary care center, a home health services company, an IPA, and a  large physician group practice. CharterCARE also operates a school of nursing.

Our coordinated regional care model allows us to deliver services to patients at multiple levels of care, at the right time and place and at lower costs. This way of organizing and delivering health care services enables us to optimize population health management strategies in Rhode Island.

CharterCARE is a joint venture company that leverages both the health care management expertise and capital strength of Prospect Medical Holdings, a California-based company that owns and operates hospitals in Texas and California.

CharterCARE regularly undergoes a comprehensive study of unmet health needs in the communities we serve. This study  -- known as a community health needs assessment (CHNA) -- is updated every three years to ensure our strategic plans and programs are responding to changing needs and demographics in our community. Representatives from Fatima, Roger Williams, and other hospitals in Rhode Island met in the spring to review the findings of this study and agreed to work together to address identified needs. While hospitals have community-specific implementation plans to address these and other areas, they will continue to meet collectively to address these issues collaboratively and analyze the impact of their activities. The CHNA Steering Committee and Rhode Island Department of Health were also involved in the process to ensure statewide efforts for community health improvements were properly aligned.

In response to those extensive findings, CharterCARE has proposed plans to meet these needs. Click the link below to review our study and its recommendations. We also invite you to visit to learn more about health issues in Rhode Island and efforts underway to improve the health of our community.
