Until Further Notice: Only Entrance to Hospital is Through Emergency Department
Starting May 13th, all patients must use the new hospital entrance. The physician clinics entrance near Vesper Lane will close.
Nantucket Cottage Hospital will enter the final phase of the new hospital construction next week, bringing us one step closer to completion of this historic project. Demolition of the old hospital will begin on May 14th, but this final hurdle will also require us to close the hospital entrance at the physician clinics to ensure the safety of our patients.
This means the only patient access to the hospital will be at the new emergency department entrance off Prospect Street, effective Monday, May 13th. The physician clinics entrance is temporarily closed during this period, so there is no access to the hospital from the main parking lot.
We recognize having only one entrance for patient access to the hospital, even temporarily, will be a challenge for our patients and staff, but this is necessary to ensure patient safety during the final construction activities on the hospital campus. The hospital will be implementing several measures to assist patients in accessing the hospital during this interim period, including, including free valet parking for patients at the ER entrance 7 days per week.
