Massachusetts General Hospital's Home Base Program



Massachusetts General Hospital's Home Base Program serves patients with complex physical and behavioral health diagnoses who show ineffective patterns of healthcare utilization by implementing individualized care plans developed by a multidisciplinary care team. Home Base services are specifically designed to overcome common barriers to care for returning Veterans. The program provides care to all Veterans and their families, regardless of ability to pay or discharge status. It utilizes a “three generation” model of care that extends to parents, children and extended family members who are effectively integrated into care. The care team consists of both child and adult psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and neuropsychologists, nurses and nurse practitioners, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, licensed clinical social workers, addiction specialists and peer-to-peer outreach coordinators.
