The Stories Behind the Statistics Showing the Impact of What We Do We are very proud of what our education programs and research activities are achieving. Our accomplishments can be summarized in facts and figures, but they are broader and deeper than hard, cold numbers. Often the best way to truly communicate is by telling the stories behind the statistics. By sharing these stories, we hope you will understand how academic endeavors are core to our Baystate Mission, essential to the care of our patients and their families, and key to value-driven, cutting-edge health care. And, we hope you will want to learn more about us and what we do.
