Baystate Franklin Medical Center is a cornerstone of wellness and health care for the northern area of the Pioneer Valley and keeping high quality health care close to home is at the core of our mission. The Baystate Franklin Medical Center surgery modernization project will enable us to enhance existing services, add new technologies, retain our existing surgeons and recruit additional talent to our area.

Highlights of this project include:

  • Four new, larger operating rooms designed to handle today’s modern technology and future advancements.
  • Re-purposing the existing surgical space for endoscopy procedures and a specialized bronchoscopy suite.
  • Larger and more private Pre- and Post-Anesthesia Care bays for surgical patients.
  • Larger family waiting areas for patient’s loved ones
