The CHEM Center is a unique model of collaboration between many health care facilities. Over 20 years ago, CHEM, Inc. (Community Hospitals of Eastern Middlesex) was incorporated by community hospitals in the north of Boston area to investigate and develop shared service programs. Members were interested in offering state of the art clinical programs to patients in their service area. This innovative consortium was the first of its kind and was a leader in the area of shared medical services. Programs developed over the years include the CHEM Center for MRI and the CHEM Center for Radiation Oncology.
