Reopening

Pentucket Medical has remained committed to ensuring the safety of our patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since June 1, we have been treating patients on-site per the four-phase guidance issued to healthcare facilities by Governor Baker and the Massachusetts Department of Health and Human Services.

In the coming weeks, we will continue following stringent infection prevention processes and implementing specific precautions to ensure a safe environment for essential patient care services.
