Baystate Health is honored to be a Presenting Sponsor of the Hot Chocolate Run as our community celebrates Safe Passage, the Hampshire County organization addressing domestic violence. Baystate Health offers important medical and emotional support resources to community members who are the victims of physical and psychological domestic abuse. This event is a great opportunity to increase awareness in the community about domestic violence and support and improve the lives of people who are impacted by domestic violence.
At Baystate Health, we know that domestic violence does not discriminate; it affects our patients and families, employees, and communities. Throughout our various hospitals and locations, survivors seek help for emergencies, injuries, and assistance with longer-term needs. Our collaboration with Safe Passage brings together health issues with domestic violence and helps survivors find safe and helpful places to seek support.
