Current Job Opportunities

Program Specific Data: HHC has a specific focus on the opioid epidemic which is disproportionately affecting our patient population and service area communities. Massachusetts is among the top ten states with the highest rate of opioid-related overdose deaths with the rate being double that of the national rate.

This trend directly impacts our patients with over 70% of our patient population identifying as Hispanic/Latinx.
