Patient Transfers Off-Island

At Nantucket Cottage Hospital, we partner with numerous teaching hospitals, including Massachusetts General Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, Boston Medical Center, Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital Boston and Tufts Medical Center, among others. In the event that our Emergency Department staff makes the determination to transfer a patient to one of the larger hospitals in New England’s medical hub, the best possible care will be extended to everyone in need.
