Our History

The CharterCARE Health Partners Foundation was established in 2010 as part of CharterCARE Health Partners, the umbrella organization for St. Joseph Health Center, Our Lady of Fatima Hospital, and Roger Williams Medical Center.


In June of 2014, CharterCARE Health Partners was purchased by Prospect Medical Holdings, a California based for-profit medical services company. As a result, CharterCARE Foundation became a separate 501© nonprofit organization serving the broader needs of the RI Community.


The Foundation changed its name to CharterCARE Foundation and moved to its current location in February of 2014 and named Paula Iacono, former Development Officer for CharterCARE Health Partners, as Executive Director.
