Western Massachusetts: A Wonderful Place to BE

Baystate Health is based in Springfield, the largest city in western Massachusetts—third largest in Massachusetts. With a metropolitan area of more than half a million people, we have all the amenities of a big city, but with the ambiance of a small town.

Western Mass spans the entire state from Connecticut to Vermont, and from the Berkshires in the west to Worcester in the east. This relatively small area encompasses revitalizing small cities, hard-working rural hamlets, and quirky college towns.

You'll Never Run Out of Things to Do

Enjoy the quiet and the quaint

...fantastic farm-to-table restaurants, intimate theaters and concert halls, art galleries and artisan studios, historic homes, museums, and craft breweries.

Explore something new

...dinosaur footprints, apple picking, Six Flags New England, Dr. Seuss museum, Basketball Hall of Fame, and the MGM resort casino.

Take it outside

...hiking, biking, rock climbing, fishing, skiing, zip-lining, golfing, whitewater rafting, and kayaking are all available due to our diverse topography—we have the state's highest point at Mt. Greylock and New England's largest river, the Connecticut.

Western Mass is a wonderful place to work, play—and live.
