Emerson Hospital

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.

  1. Center for Parents and Teachers to improve youth behavioral health through parent education
  2.  Concord Prison to provide a public health speaker series for inmates
  3.  Gaining Ground to grow and donate organic produce for emergency food programs
  4.  Concord Promise to foster healthy technology use for tweens and teens

I am really grateful to Emerson Hospital. I came into the E.R. with potential heart issues; I was immediately given an EKG, was taken into a room within...

My daughter recently was seen by Dr Goudie at Emerson's ER recently with an on-going issue. While Children's Hospital was helpful in the initial diagnosis, they gave little sense of importance to a recurrence. Even my daughter's own pediatrician had distanced herself from the situation by telling us she was just avoiding school and we needed to force her to go and not let the school send her home, even when she vomited in class. Her condition, which started 2 months ago & was initially treated well, had returned and had more recently persisted for over 10 days. Dr Goudie was terrific in communicating with our daughter who was in pain and very upset. Finally, someone took her situation very seriously! His bedside manner, diagnosis & treatment were all spot on as my daughter left feeling validated and more importantly, feel better. She improved tremendously when she started taking her new prescription and several days later she remains feeling well as we look forward to our appointment with a specialist.

First time at the ER with my 1 yr old today and everyone was so nice especially having a sick child. I’ve never had generous care from start to finish so it was very refreshing. My nurse, Kristin, was amazing so, THANK YOU.

10/10 we were just there for our second child birth and they were amazing. Our nurses Lilly and Karen were phenomenal. Could not have gone better.

Even though the er was packed and they were short staffed the nurses, doctors, pcts and even the workers collecting the trash were wonderful. Everyone was so caring and put me at ease.

I brought my almost 2 year old son hear after accidentally putting the wrong eardrops in his ears. I was very terrified and stressed, the ear drops were ototoxic and had the risk of making him lose his hearing. The ER rushed us in and took care of us right away. After the MD reviewed the meds they reassured us that everything would be ok and that my son was at no great risk. They gave my son a toy and a book to keep and take home which made him calm during the unfamiliar and stressing circumstances. The ER nurse was very empathetic, professional, and caring. We were instructed how to follow up with our ear surgeon and primary MD upon discharge.

Going to Emerson, even for an emergency is like going to the spa compared to other hospitals. The care is excellent, everything is beautifully updated, super clean and doesn't have that weird hospital smell. My daughter and I have been going there for everything since 2006 and we never had a bad experience. If hospitals intimidate you, make the drive to Emerson its well worth it

I recently had knee replacement surgery at Emerson and had great care during my stay. I want to especially thank Donna(pre-op), Helen, Sam, Calli and Maria my nurses on Wheeler 5 for their kindness, levity, thoroughness and expertise in caring for me . Pain management, cleanliness, comfort and peace of mind were their priorities as well as mine. I also thank the staff beside them that also help make a place run so smoothly with comfort.

I had a surgery with an unfortunate complication so I had to stay in the hospital for 6 days. Care was good... doctors and nurses generally very nice and knowledgeable... I wish there were only one bed per room instead of two

The best hospital I have been too. The staff were wonderful! Dr Laust was amazing. Shout out to Emma, Jess, Christine, Delaney, Micheal the PA, Mya, Karen and Jess. There are so much more but I didn’t get some names. The female PA was very professional to a patient that was nasty. I highly recommend this hospital.

I visited Emerson Hospital ER on a Thursday afternoon. I had severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen and then the next day, my stomach was so sore and I was in so much pain I could barely walk or touch my lower abdomen. Since I live in Maynard, I immediately went to Emerson as I knew this much discomfort and pain was not normal. I was IMMEDIATELY admitted, triaged, and taken into an examination room. I was then IMMEDIATELY seen by a nurse, physicians assistant and ER doctor. They took the time to listen to me, ask me important questions and then quickly order the testing and got me started on IV fluids and pain medication - bloodwork, urine culture, etc. From there, they ordered the ultrasound and other necessary tests. The nurse checked on me all the time and was so kind, attentive, and knowledgeable. The doctor was patient, kind, and had excellent bedside manner. The nurse that triaged me also made me feel comfortable and cared for right from the start - even though I was in so much pain. Also, there was a very cute painting in my room of a lake and birds and trees and as silly as it sounds, that helped me meditate and breathe and feel at ease at a time where I was so scared and nervous to find out the cause of my lower abdominal pain. I highly recommend this hospital and it’s staff. You’ll be well cared for, you won’t be misdiagnosed, and they’ll take the time to truly ensure you are taken care of, not sitting around in pain, and feel like more than a number. I’m thankful this hospital is so close to my home.

Went in for emergency, needing urgent surgery & received such high quality care! It’s a very clean, comfortable facility. Each & every medical team member I encountered was knowledgeable, kind & personable.

I visited Emerson Hospital ER on a Thursday afternoon. The day prior, I had undergone a fertility diagnostic test called a “Sonohysterogram” with saline at a fertility center as part of my fertility assessment. I had severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen in the hours after the test and then the next day, my stomach was so sore and I was in so much pain I could barely walk or touch my lower abdomen. Since I live in Maynard, I immediately went to Emerson as I knew this much discomfort and pain was not normal following this test. I was IMMEDIATELY admitted, triaged, and taken into an examination room. I was then IMMEDIATELY seen by a nurse, physicians assistant and ER doctor. They took the time to listen to me, ask me important questions and then quickly order the testing and got me started on IV fluids and pain medication - bloodwork, urine culture, etc. From there, they ordered the ultrasound and other necessary tests.

Last week while on vacation, I became extremely ill. Not being familiar with the city and reluctant to check myself into the emergency room, I gave Dr. a call. He arrived at my hotel within 40 minutes and delivered both fantastic bedside manner and medical care. As a native New Yorker, I was admittedly skeptical. But Dr.'s experience and board certifications put me at ease. I was back on my feet the next day!

Last night, while playing hockey I was hit in the mouth with a stick. My lip split open and I chipped teeth. Upon arriving at Emerson Hospital's ER, I was quickly admitted, escorted by a nurse to a room where she took my vitals. Withing 10 mins. Dr. Thomas Lareau checked me out, cleaned my lip and inserted several stitches. His bedside manner was friendly, informative and his sewing skills were superb! He reviewed with me the plan for suture removal with my primary care physician and sent me on my way. All withing 40 mins! Absolutely great service without the long waiting times of other area hospitals. If you need to visit an ER, I highly recommend Emerson Hospital!!

Spent a few days in the maternity ward following the delivery of our fourth. On a positive note, the nurses and doctors were for the most part very helpful and friendly for our extended stay. I do have a critical recommendation, however, the chairs in the postpartum section are terrible. For breastfeeding mothers, this is not a good way to start them off. For the partners, like myself, who sat in these chairs for hours holding the wee baby - ouch.
