Brockton Hospital remains closed with no emergency services.
The temporary closure of Brockton Hospital/Signature Healthcare has impacted all of us in Brockton and the surrounding areas who count on the hospital for critical treatment. The City of Brockton’s first priority is the health and safety of its citizens. That is why we are working closely with Signature Healthcare and all the impacted agencies to ensure continuity of healthcare, convenient and safe access to emergency medicine and urgent care, and access to behavioral health services.
What has the City been doing to support the recovery efforts and continuity of care for residents?
Mayor Robert Sullivan has gathered a group consisting of representatives from impacted organizations like Signature Healthcare, Good Samaritan Medical Center, South Shore Hospital, Father Bill’s Main Spring, Highpoint Treatment Center, and Brewster Ambulance Service; organizations that are willing to step in and lend a hand like Brockton Neighborhood Health Center, BAMSI, the Veterans’ Administration, Boston Medical Center, and BEMA; and support organizations like the Brockton Police and Fire Departments, the Board of Health, and the Department of Health and Human Services. The Mayor has been conducting several meetings per week with the group to check in and provide support where needed.
