Baystate Noble Hospital
Baystate Noble Hospital, now part of Baystate Health, had its beginnings in 1893. It was then that a wealthy local manufacturer, Reuben Noble, bequeathed a large portion of his estate to establish a hospital to care for the greater Westfield community, opening with 20 beds and eight physicians.
Today, Baystate Noble is served by approximately 400 primary and specialty physicians. Each year, there are an average of 150,000 outpatient visits to primary care, express care and hospital-based clinics, and lab and diagnostic imaging services. Some 30,000 patients visit to its emergency room and the hospital admits around 3,500 patients. Its physicians typically perform 400 inpatient and 1,000 outpatient surgeries each year.
Baystate Noble received an ‘A’ Hospital Safety Score from the Leapfrog Group for 2012, 2013 and 2014. And it recently ranked first among Pioneer Valley hospitals in Hospital Compare Survey (HCAHPS). Baystate Noble is also a past winner of the American Heart Association's Get with the Guidelines Stroke (GWTG-Stroke) Gold Performance Achievement Award.
