Public Announcement Concerning a Proposed Health Care Project

December 14, 2017
On or about December 29, 2017, Baystate Health, Inc., with a principal address at 759 Chestnut Street, Springfield, Massachusetts (“BH”), intends to file an application with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health for a Determination of Need with respect to an expansion of facilities at Baystate Orthopedic Surgery Center (“BOSC”), a licensed satellite of Baystate Medical Center (“BMC”) located at 50 Wasson Avenue, Springfield, Massachusetts (“Project”). As part of the proposed Project, BMC will build out two operating rooms and equip seven pre-and post-operative care rooms in the existing BOSC facility. The total value of the Project is $3,800,000. The Project will provide expanded space to allow BMC to satisfy anticipated growth in the demand for outpatient orthopedic surgical services and to accommodate a broader range of surgical procedures while continuing to provide high-quality, efficient care in a local, low-cost setting; it is not anticipated to otherwise have any impact on the price or delivery of services to BH’s existing patient panel. Any ten Taxpayers of Massachusetts may register in connection with the intended Application or amendment by no later than 30 days of the filing of the Notice of Determination of Need by contacting the Department of Public Health, Determination of Need Program, 250 Washington Street, 6th Floor, Boston, MA 02108.
