Special Note: Emergency Care During COVID-19
During these last few months, many of the hospital emergency departments in the Boston area—and across the country—have experienced higher than normal patient volume. At Mass General we are experiencing this at record-breaking levels. We apologize for longer than expected wait times, but promise to deliver outstanding patient-centered care. Our doctors, nurses, advanced practice providers and administrative staff are all dedicated to serving your emergency care needs.
