Middlesex Opens Temporary Emergency Department Space
MIDDLETOWN — At 4 p.m. today, Middlesex Hospital began providing emergency care to walk-in patients. The Hospital opened a temporary Emergency Department space in its outpatient surgical services area.
It is still not receiving patients via ambulance, and the Hospital’s normal Emergency Department location in Middletown is still closed until further notice.
Patients who visit the Hospital’s temporary Emergency Department space should drive to the main entrance of the Hospital. At that point, a security officer will be there to greet them. The officer will then direct them to where they need to go.
While Emergency Department services will be provided in a different location than normal, all patients will still receive the same quality care and the same services that they’ve come to expect.
If someone is sick or injured and needs immediate attention, they should call 9-1-1. An ambulance will bring them to the next nearest emergency department. Middlesex’s other Emergency Department locations in Westbrook and Marlborough are also open, and patients can also receive the help they need at those locations.
