Baystate Wing Hospital
Baystate Wing Hospital, now part of Baystate Health, has been serving patients in the Palmer, Quaboag Hills and Pioneer Valley region since 1913.
Baystate Wing Hospital is fully accredited by the Joint Commission and is designated a Primary Stroke Service hospital by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. It was also recently recognized by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services as one of model hospitals promoting health and improving quality of life.
Together, the hospital and its community medical centers are focused on high quality patient-centered care delivered by physicians specializing in 45 medical disciplines, including adult family medicine, internal medicine, geriatric medicine OB/GYN, and pediatric medicine.
We have recently been recognized by the American Heart Association Get with the Guidelines Program for our commitment to quality stroke care. Hospitals that implement Get with the Guidelines realize measurable results, including improved patient outcomes and fewer recurring events. It’s a difference that shows in the lives of patients and their families and in the satisfaction felt by caregivers empowered to do their best.
Hospitals receiving “GOLD” recognition have reached an aggressive goal of treating stroke patients with 85% or higher compliance to core standard levels of care outlined by the American Heart Association for 24 consecutive months. “Gold Plus” demonstrates at least 75% compliance with an additional 7-10 stroke quality measures.
The 74-bed hospital and its five community medical centers in Belchertown, Ludlow, Monson, Palmer and Wilbraham offer emergency, diagnostic, medical, surgical and psychiatric services as well as outpatient services provided by more than 50 medical staff and 165 registered nurses. Baystate Wing Hospital’s network also includes the Griswold Behavioral Health Center and the Wing VNA and Hospice.
