Turning the Tide on COVID-19

 

 

For more than two months, UMass Memorial has been fighting a valiant battle against COVID-19. During our response, the health and safety of our caregivers and our patients have been #1. We know you’re fearful about going to the doctor or hospital, but while we’re doing amazing work caring for COVID-19 patients, we also have strict safety measures in place for non-COVID-19 patients. Don’t delay care! If you’re in pain, have an injury or think something is wrong with your health, call your doctor, go to the Emergency Department or local urgent care.
