Northeast Health Partners (NHP) is a joint partnership between two Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) and two Community Mental Health Centers (CMHC). These groups have deep roots providing health care services to the under-served Members of Region 2 and have shown their commitment to improve the lives of our Members. To add to this local knowledge and expertise, NHP will be supported by the national experience of Beacon Health Options (Beacon) who will provide administrative service support. Our four organizations have formed this partnership with a strong belief that local communities are in the best position to make the changes that are cost-effective and will improve the health and quality of care for all Members.
