About Emerson

High-quality health care 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 health care 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.
