UPDATE – Saturday, February 24, 2018


Middlesex Hospital has resumed providing emergency care to walk-in patients. 

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.

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

All other Middlesex Health System locations are operating as normal.

Emergency Services at Shoreline Medical Center

The Shoreline Medical Center offers a full complement of emergency services – 24 hours a day, seven days a week – provided by board–certified emergency physicians and other clinical personnel. There are 12 emergency treatment rooms, with two of these rooms dedicated to critical patients. An Express Care area also serves patients with non–life–threatening but urgent medical needs.

There are also isolation and decontamination areas in the Emergency Department and a helipad on site for LIFE STAR medical helicopter transports.

Express Care

Designed for injuries and illnesses that are urgent, but not life-threatening, Express Care is staffed by physician assistants, nurse practitioners and emergency nurses. Call us for current hours of operation.
