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.


Urology at Middlesex Hospital

Urological problems and diseases can sometimes be a sensitive subject. As a patient, you want a urology team with specialists dedicated to providing care that is both effective and sensitive to your personal needs.

At Middlesex Hospital, our urology team provides that personal care you may be looking for. Our board-certified urologists provide up-to-date, personalized evaluation of urological problems, including those of the urinary system in children and adults, and those of the genital system in men.

Among these problems are benign and malignant diseases of the kidneys, adrenal gland, bladder, and diseases of the prostate. Male infertility and sexual dysfunction are treated with the most current techniques, as are incontinence and urinary stone disease. Laser treatment for stones, skin lesions and strictures is available, and extracorporeal shock wave lithotriptors are used for the treatment of stone disease.

Quality Measures

Middlesex Hospital is proud to be one of the first hospitals in Connecticut to voluntarily participate in major quality programs conducted by several government and healthcare industry organizations.

The foremost quality program in which we participate is called "Core Measures." These quality measures were developed by The Joint Commission — the nation’s foremost accrediting body in health care — and based on quality indicators from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Adherence to Core Measures has been shown to improve patient outcomes dramatically.
