“We are so honored to receive the 2024 Excellence in Innovation award,” said Dr. Robyn Riseberg, Founder of Boston Community Pediatrics. “At BCP we are committed to changing the way healthcare is delivered to all children through our new model of care that expands the definition of what it means to be healthy.”

Boston Community Pediatrics has developed care navigation and wellness programs that address the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) in new and integrated ways through improved access to resources and providing vital support to families. By gaining trust and working closely with families, leveraging partnerships with community organizations, enhancing care coordination, and actively addressing health-related social needs, BCP is positively transforming the lives of patients, promoting better health outcomes, and fostering community well-being.

The 2024 Nonprofit Excellence Award finalists emerged from a pool of nominees put forward by their peers and community members.
