Do you volunteer or have a favorite non-profit organization on the Cape? If they serve to improve the health of Cape Codders, Cape Cod Healthcare may have an opportunity to help them achieve their goals.
For our organization, caring for the community means more than just medical care. We also provide grants and resources for non-profit organizations that promote the broader health and wellness of our neighbors.
