Overview

Mission Statement

Our mission is to heal and uplift individuals, families and our community. Our vision is to redefine the model of a healthy community through equitable access to comprehensive health care and education.

Nationally recognized as a model for the delivery of comprehensive health and human services in an urban community, The Dimock Center provides the residents of Boston with convenient access to high quality, low cost health care and human services that might not otherwise be available.


Background Statement

The Dimock Center was founded on July 1, 1862, as the New England Hospital for Women and Children. We have treated thousands of individuals and families throughout generations. The New England Hospital became Dimock Community Health Center in 1969, a minority-directed and community-based nonprofit organization providing an integrated continuum of health and human services to some of Boston’s neediest neighborhoods.

Dimock has three main service areas, all of which are strategically integrated into our comprehensive model – designed to meet the full scope of our community’s physical, developmental, and behavioral needs:

 

  • Health and Community Care - This program consists of primary and specialty services aimed at health maintenance, screenings, and disease prevention.
  • Behavioral Health Services - These services include substance abuse treatment services, mental health care, developmental disabilities assistance, and residential services.
  • Child and Family Development Services - These services offer family-based programs including Preschool, Early Head Start and Head Start, Early Intervention, GED, and Adult Education.

 

 

Impact Statement

The Dimock Center’s goal is to ensure that clients and patients make the best use of all of our services readily available on-site, and to become a leading model among community health centers in delivering integrated and comprehensive care delivery.
 
A few examples of our past accomplishments include:
  • Dimock surpassed the state and nation in 9 of 13 clinical quality measures, including cervical cancer screening, tobacco use assessment, asthma treatment, and diabetes control. 
  • Dimock provided inpatient detoxification services and short/long term residential programs to 3,000 patients, most of them dually diagnosed, who come from 212 zip codes in Massachusetts. 
  • While our patient base grew at a similar rate as the state average, visits have grown 67% faster at Dimock than for the average MA Federally Qualified Health Center. Dimock’s visits have grown by 35% over the past five years, compared to just 21% growth at typical MA health centers.
  • Over 450 men (338 of whom were referred from our detox facility) have successfully completed our workforce development halfway house program, John Flowers Recovery Home, and secured employment within the first 90 days.
  • Our Adult Education program has amassed the second highest performance point total of the 26 Department of Elementary & Secondary Education (DESE) funded programs in Boston over five years.

Needs Statement

In order to ensure that The Dimock Center provides quitable access to comprehensive healthcare and education in the community, the following priorities are needed:

  • Expand our offsite clinics in under served areas
  • Funding for primary care programs to attract and attain physicians, practitioners, and other highly talented clinical staff 
  • Increased accessibility in patient parking
  • Increased funding for outpatient behavioral health because mental health issues are reimbursed at a lower rate than what it costs to provide the Dimock community with quality services
  • Funding to offset the increasing costs of healthcare insurance for Dimock staff

Behavioral Health Services

Dimock's Behavioral Health Services consists of programs for substance abuse, mental health, developmental disability, and residential services. The services incorporate intensive outreach for the severely and persistently mentally ill, individual and group counseling, psychiatry, child, family, and school-based treatment, residential recovery programs, and services for dually-diagnosed women with HIV.  Dimock also provides shelter and case management support for homeless families at our shelter, the Mary Eliza Mahoney House.
Budget  $10,019,000.00
Category  Mental Health, Substance Abuse Programs, General/other Inpatient Mental Health Treatment
Population Served Alcohol, Drug, Substance Abusers People/Families with People of Developmental Disabilities Females
Program Short-Term Success 
We have a long history of providing a comprehensive continuum of substance abuse care and successfully treating people with addiction issues. After the renovation and expansion of our detox facility, Dimock will increase permanently the number of beds from 30 to 40, which means 4,000 clients annually will have the opportunity to begin their road to recovery - 1,000 more than we have historically served.

Behavioral Health Services handles over 22,000 client visits annually and has a staff of more than 160 physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, counselors, case managers, recovery specialists and administrative staff committed to making a difference in the lives of the individuals who depend on Dimock every day. 

Program Long-Term Success 

We will continue as a community leader in providing comprehensive mental health, substance abuse, and developmental disability services. Dimock provides partners with invaluable guidance and recommendations for best practice models on treating dually diagnosed patients deemed most difficult and highly complex. Dimock will continue to enhance overall programming and evaluation that will attract other leaders and partners in the behavioral health field. They would be able to visit and collaborate with Dimock on effective curriculum and treatment programs on clients with a variety of mental and behavioral health issues. 

 

Program Success Monitored By 

Dimock tracks and monitors detox facility patients based on core measure standards from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. We track:

 

  • Completion rate;
  • Referral rate;
  • Medication reconciliation assessments;
  • Suicide risk assessments; and
  • Client satisfaction.
We also track the number of program participants at our residential programs.  Even though our higher-risk population may be more difficult to track or report high success rates, the data and outcomes gathered provides invaluable guidance and recommendations for best practice models on clients deemed most difficult and complex to treat.  We are able to share our unique experience to other healthcare centers and institutions. 

 

Examples of Program Success 

In the most recently completed reporting period, Dimock reported the following core measures:

 

  • 64% of clients completed treatment;
  • 100% of clients who completed treatment were referred to other Dimock programs for continued recovery services;
  • 90% of medication reconciliations were completed;
  • 100% of clients received a suicide risk assessment; and
  • 100% of clients completed a client satisfaction survey.
Our short/intermediate/long term residential programs tracked:
  • Mary Eliza Mahoney House family shelter that serves 26 families and over 40 children.
  • John Flowers Recovery Home and Askia Academy serves up to 80 men annually.
  • Women’s Renewal-CSS (Clinical Stabilization Services) and My Sister’s House serves 1,000 women annually.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
