Holyoke Medical Center to Open New Emergency Department

Holyoke Medical Center will open its new $25.4 million Emergency Department on Thursday, July 6, 2017, beginning at 7 a.m.

The new facility is located at 575 Beech Street and will be accessible by the main campus entrance at the intersections of Beech St./Hospital Dr., as well as Northampton St./Corser St. The Emergency Department will no longer be accessible from Portland St./Winchester Ave.

Signage will be in place to direct the community to the new location. The hospital has also been working closely with local police, fire, and ambulatory officials to ensure a smooth and safe transition of service locations.

"We would like to extend our appreciation to everyone who has assisted Holyoke Medical Center in creating the emergency department our community deserves. We have received overwhelming support from federal, state and local officials, in addition to the tireless efforts of our staff," said Spiros Hatiras, President and CEO of Holyoke Medical Center and Valley Health Systems.

The new emergency department is a 21,460 square foot facility featuring a new Crisis Center for Behavioral Health Services, 40 treatment areas, multi-patient trauma rooms, advance lifesaving equipment and a patient navigation service. HMC will now be able to treat patients in a more efficient and private way.

Beginning in August, the second floor of the building will be the new offices of gastroenterology, general surgery, and the weight management program. The second floor is 16,295 square feet.
In support of the emergency department our community deserves, the Holyoke Medical Center capital campaign has reached $2.1 million, of the $3 million goal. Anyone interested in helping with the Care. Community. Commitment. campaign is invited to call the hospital's Development Department at 413-534-2579.
