Emerson is a full service medical center located in historic Concord MA. Emerson was founded in 1911 and today provides advanced medical services to more than 300,000 people in 25 towns.
Emerson is well known for its outstanding nursing care and patient-centered specialty facilities, including the Mass General Cancer Center at Emerson Hospital – Bethke, the Dr. Robert C. Cantu Concussion Center, the Clough Surgical Center and the Clough Birthing Center, home to the area’s only Special Care Level 2 Nursery for moderately ill newborns.
While Emerson provide all of the services that most patients will ever need, its strong clinical collaborations with Boston’s academic medical centers ensures that patients have streamlined access to world-class resources for more advanced care should they need it.
In addition to offering many medial services, Emerson also publishes a Health Works Magazine three times per year. This resourced features inspiring patient stories, health and wellness tips, upcoming events, updates on their services, recipes and more. The current Winter 2020 issue addresses vaping, returning to the ice rink after multiple concussions, and medicated assisted treatment for addiction recovery.
Emerson is strongly connected to the community. It recently launched a Community Benefit Awards Program. Based on a comprehensive application and review process, eighteen non-profit organizations throughout the health system’s service area were awarded up to $5,000 each to expand their programs that serve the physical and mental health needs of the community. The organizations were chosen based on Emerson’s most recent Community Health Needs Assessment and address at least one of the following populations or health issues: At-risk adolescents, older adults, cancer prevention and care, mental health or domestic violence.
Four Concord organizations received these awards.
- Center for Parents and Teachers to improve youth behavioral health through parent education
- Concord Prison to provide a public health speaker series for inmates
- Gaining Ground to grow and donate organic produce for emergency food programs
- Concord Promise to foster healthy technology use for tweens and teens
