Baystate Medical Center Expansion 2012
We made a promise to constantly evolve to transform health care in a way that enriches your life. Our new building equips our nationally-recognized doctors, nurses and care teams with tools to help raise the bar of excellence even higher.
Inside the MassMutual Wing, the Davis Family Heart & Vascular Center opened in March, with world class heart and vascular procedure rooms designed by our heart and vascular experts. And coming in December, our community will benefit from a brand new Emergency Department.
New Emergency Department Now Open
When we began construction of our new building, our plans included a new Emergency Department, but not right away. But you said: “Our community needs a new Emergency Department at Baystate Medical Center. Now.”
When it opened on December 3, our new Emergency Department and Trauma Center began allowing us the space and flexibility to better meet the growing needs of our community. With over three times the space, the new department features:
- the region’s only completely separate pediatric Emergency Department, with child-sized facilities, 18 treatment rooms, and a separate waiting area;
- a private, secure area for patients with behavioral health issues;
- an expanded trauma suite, immediately adjacent to the sheltered ambulance bay and helipad;
- patient rooms with glass-front doors, instead of treatment bays separated by curtains, to enhance privacy and a healing environment.
You expect the best from us and we intend to bring it to you. This new building keeps us moving forward, for many generations to come.
