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

MIDDLETOWN

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.

Rehabilitation Services at Marlborough Medical Center

 

Rehabilitation services use physical agents to restore function, reduce pain and deliver effective outcomes for our patients. Located at 3 East Hampton Road in the Marlborough Tavern Green near the Medical Center, the Outpatient Rehabilitation Office is a resource for creating customized programs to speed your recovery.

Middlesex Hospital Rehabilitation is a multi-faceted hospital-based program that includes Inpatient, Outpatient and Homecare services. Patient care is delivered within the scope of practice of the licensed professionals who make up the Rehabilitation Team. These include physical and occupational therapists and assistants and speech language pathologists.

Patient expectations are defined at the initial evaluation and in discharge planning to ensure a high level of patient participation. In order to obtain Rehabilitation services, a patient must have written orders from his/her physician requesting evaluation and treatment. Once an evaluation is complete, there is communication with the referring physician regarding the plan of care established for that patient.
