The health and safety of our patients, families and staff is our highest priority. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is requiring hospitals to meet established criteria as part of the state’s reopening plan. Effective March 22, 2021, Massachusetts moved into phase four of its reopening plan in accordance with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health’s guidance plan for reopening.
