About Emerson

High-quality health care comes home

Founded in 1911, Emerson Hospital is a full-service, regional medical center headquartered in historic Concord, Massachusetts.

Emerson provides advanced medical services to more than 300,000 people in 25 towns. We're a 179-bed hospital with more than 300 primary care doctors and specialists who care for everything from arrhythmias to wound care.

Our core mission has always been to make high-quality health care more accessible to those who live and work in our community. To further this mission, Emerson has outpatient facilities in Westford, Groton, Sudbury and Concord.

In addition, we’ve opened new 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.
