Expert Emergency Care. Where you need it, whenever you need it.
When it’s an emergency, BHS provides around-the-clock care for North, Central and South Berkshire communities, all staffed by board-certified emergency medicine physicians, nurses, technicians and other caregivers who understand your need for expert, compassionate care. Our Emergency Departments at Berkshire Medical Center, Fairview Hospital and the BMC Satellite Emergency Facility at the North Adams Campus of BMC are equipped with state-of-the-art technology that can quickly diagnose stroke, heart attack, and other life-threatening conditions.
Three levels of care
For life-threatening emergencies, such as symptoms of heart attack, stroke, a head injury, trouble breathing, or severe bleeding, call 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Department.
For non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries that need attention right away, Berkshire Health Systems offers fast, effective and affordable care. Our services include:
• BHS Urgent Care: Open every day, including most holidays, from 10 am to 8 pm, and staffed by BMC Emergency Department physicians, nurses and technologists who are skilled in addressing all urgent medical needs. We also have lab and X-ray facilities on site.
• BHS Walk-In Care: Open weekdays from 10 am to 6 pm, no appointments necessary. You’ll be seen by a nurse practitioner who specializes in treating common conditions, from allergies and earaches to muscle sprains and strains. We accept self-pay and a wide range of insurance plans.
At BMC, we also offer anytime access to surgical specialists in general surgery, vascular and thoracic care, orthopedic surgery and neurosurgery, as well as experts in neurology, cardiology, dentistry, behavioral health and more.
Berkshire Medical Center is also home to Berkshire County’s only Trauma Center, offering specialized care for critically ill or injured patients. If necessary, both BMC and Fairview Hospital provide a seamless transfer to in-patient care.
