UPDATE – Friday, February 23, 2018 (6:30 p.m.)


At 4 p.m. today, Middlesex Hospital began providing emergency care to walk-in patients. The Hospital opened a temporary Emergency Department space in its outpatient surgical services area.

It is still not receiving patients via ambulance, and the Hospital’s normal Emergency Department
location in Middletown is still closed until further notice.

Patients who visit the Hospital’s temporary Emergency Department space should drive to the main
entrance of the Hospital. At that point, a security officer will be there to greet them. The officer will
then direct them to where they need to go.

If someone is sick or injured and needs immediate attention, they should call 9-1-1. An ambulance will bring them to the next nearest emergency department. Middlesex’s other Emergency Department locations in Westbrook and Marlborough are open.

Non-emergent surgeries are canceled for today, Friday, February 23.

Radiology is up and running at the Hospital. However, all outpatient radiology tests are canceled at the Hospital in Middletown today, Friday, February 23.

Patients can get lab tests at the Outpatient Center, 534 Saybrook Road in Middletown; at the Marlborough Medical Center in Marlborough; or at the Shoreline Medical Center in Westbrook. However, they should not come to the Hospital.

Patients are now allowed to receive visitors. Flu restrictions remain in place.

All other Middlesex Health System locations are operating as normal.
