Satellite Emergency Facility is Open at Former North Adams Regional Hospital.
Following the closure of North Adams Regional Hospital, Berkshire Medical Center (BMC) opened a Satellite Emergency Facility (SEF) in the site of the former Emergency Room at NARH. The Satellite Emergency Facility provides comprehensive emergency services to the entire Northern Berkshire community and is open 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.
The SEF is licensed through BMC and the BMC Emergency Department by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The SEF has emergency diagnostic services, including CT scanning, X-Ray and Laboratory testing. Patients, whether transported by ambulance or going to the facility on their own, are treated in the SEF. Severely injured or ill patients will be stabilized and transferred to the most appropriate hospital for further care, as there are no inpatient or surgical services available on-site.
