The Central Mass Regional Public Health Alliance is a coalition of 7 municipalities (Grafton, Holden, Leicester, Millbury, Shrewsbury, West Boylston, and the City of Worcester) working cooperatively to create and sustain a viable, cost-effective, and labor-efficient regional public health district.
The regional health district provides a comprehensive array of services to partner municipalities through a single organization managed by Worcester's Division of Public Health. The inspiration to develop a regional alliance arose from the considerable disparity in size, available resources, and kinds and types of resources offered by each municipality.
