What is next for North Adams Regional Hospital?

NORTH ADAMS, Mass (WWLP) — North Adams Mayor Dick Alcombright told 22News he is confident the hospital’s emergency room will reopen on Monday under new ownership.

Berkshire Medical Center wants to take over the day to day operations, and use the North Adams emergency room as a satellite facility to its main hospital in Pittsfield.

The state Department of Public Health will ultimately decide if Berkshire Medical Center gets the licensing to run the emergency room.

The Attorney General’s Office also said they’d be conducting a full investigation into the actions of the hospital’s board which led to the rapid closure.
