We are proud to be a WAM Business Partner. Museums are important both economically and culturally. They provide a place for individuals in our community to meet, explore, and discuss the past, present, and future, which can influence their view of the world.

UMass Memorial Health Care has a deep-seated mission to improve the health and well-being of the people of Central Massachusetts. As health care continues to evolve, we are increasingly looking outside our walls to help address the social determinants that drive health outcomes. These social factors determine community stability and the quality of civic life. We can think of no greater partner in this effort than the Worcester Art Museum and strongly encourage our employees and families to visit and experience all that it has to offer. Through our support of this prized institution, we know we are contributing greatly to the cultural richness of life in our community. And, it turns out, that makes healthier and happier people.
