About Emerson

High-quality healthcare comes home


Emerson Health provides advanced medical services to more than 300,000 people in 25 towns. Our core mission is to deliver exceptional patient-centered care that is highly reliable, safe, compassionate, equitable, efficient, and coordinated. We make high-quality healthcare more accessible to those who live and work in our community at Emerson Hospital in Concord, health centers in Bedford, Westford, Groton, Sudbury and Concord, and urgent care centers in Hudson and Littleton.

Emerson is well known for its outstanding nursing care and patient-centered specialty facilities, including the Mass General Cancer Center at Emerson Hospital – Bethke, the Dr. Robert C. Cantu Concussion Center, the Clough Surgical Center and the Clough Birthing Center, home to the area’s only special care level 2 nursery for moderately ill newborns.

While we provide all of the services that most patients will ever need, our strong clinical collaborations with Boston’s academic medical centers ensures that you have streamlined access to world-class resources for more advanced care should you need it.
