New Hospital Opening Wednesday, February 20, 2019

HOW TO ACCESS THE NEW HOSPITAL: The main entrance of the new hospital will be unusable until the old building is taken down and removed. During this interim period, patients can access the new hospital two ways:

  • From the physician practices entrance near Vesper Lane
  • From the Emergency Department entrance off Prospect Street

Patients should use the physician practices entrance near Vesper Lane for doctors appointments. Nantucket Cottage Hospital will provide complimentary valet parking service at the entrance to the Emergency Department. We anticipate the main entrance will be open by late June.

Hospital Open House Featured in The Cape Cod Times

NANTUCKET — Nantucket is on the verge a new era of health care, and in movie parlance, its new hospital is ready for a close-up.

An estimated 500 people got a sneak peek at the gleaming new Nantucket Cottage Hospital on Saturday during two open house events — one for employees and their families and one for the general public — in advance of an official opening next month. The $89 million, 106,000-square-foot facility is adjacent to the existing and soon-to-be demolished hospital that was built in 1957 when the island had roughly one-third of its current year-round population.

“I think of it as time travel from 1957 to the 21st century,” said Dr. Margot Hartmann, president and CEO of Nantucket Cottage Hospital.

NANTUCKET — Pauline Skok was struck by the beauty of this island the first time she stepped off the ferry, on a work assignment in 2016. So after years of working as a traveling nurse, she decided to take a job at Nantucket Cottage Hospital.

Skok knew that this summer playground of the upper crust, with its historic charm and picture-perfect beaches, had a shortage of affordable housing. But she was not prepared for the struggle she would face next.The veteran nurse wanted a stable, year-long lease — but instead drifted through eight residences over two and a half years. Every time she moved, she wondered: “How much more can I do?” Skok’s experience is so common that it has a name — “the Nantucket Shuffle” — and the local hospital, a major employer on the island, is taking an unusual step to address it.
