Employees at Partners Healthcare, including North Shore Medical Center, have spent the past several weeks collecting baby items for their annual “Baby Basket” drive for needy families at area community health centers. Ten new mothers at Lynn Community Health Center each received a basket that included a variety of items including diapers, wipes, clothing, bottles, toys, and more. New mom Liz Batista and her five day old daughter Elizabet were among the recipients.

Due to unprecedented staffing challenges, Urgent Care is experiencing longer than usual wait times.
