Drop Off Box for Prescription Medications Now Available at Emerson Hospital
Thanks to a gift from the Auxiliary of Emerson Hospital, Emerson now has a MedSafe kiosk where anyone can safely drop off their unused or expired medications any time of day or night. The box is located in the hallway of Emerson’s Emergency Department, located at 133 Old Road to Nine Acre Corner, Concord. MedSafe safely disposes of the medications so they will not harm the environment. Dropping off unused prescriptions will help ensure a safe community.

Babies Born at Emerson Hospital Go Home with New Sleep Sacks
Beginning this month and to commemorate October’s SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) Awareness month, babies born at Emerson Hospital will be going home with new sleep sacks. The sleep sacks are a gift from the Auxiliary of Emerson Hospital to help provide a safe and comfortable sleeping experience. Sleep sacks have been proven to be safe for sleeping babies and reduce hip dysplasia in infants, a condition where the baby’s hip joint is dislocated, which can result in a limp and pain during movement.
