Medical Facilities Still Open in North Adams
|The Ambulatory Care Center will remain open; the Doctors Building to the right, owned by the hospital, will close.|
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The issues surrounding the closure of North Adams Regional Hospital do not affect the following facilities, which remain open:
Practices that operate in the Ambulatory Care Center will not close and neither will the building.
Although often referred to as the Doctors Building, the care center is a separate building connected to the Doctors Building and hospital but which is not owned by the hospital. It was built in 2001 by a separate company unaffiliated to Northern Berkshire Healthcare.
The only practices affected by the closure are those three owned and operated by Northern Berkshire Healthcare: Northern Berkshire Family Practice, Northern Berkshire OB/GYN and Northern Berkshire General Surgery.
The family practice and OB/GYN doctors are working with Berkshire Health Systems for administrative support and reportedly will attempt to remain functioning in new locations. They will close by next Friday. VNA & Hospice of Northern Berkshire will also close next week; there are reports that a South County VNA may take over patients.
