Baystate Medical Center, Regional Campus

baystate medical centerBaystate Medical Center, a 716-bed teaching hospital and the region’s only level 1 trauma center, is part of Baystate Health, a not-for-profit, mission-driven, integrated health system serving a population of over 750,000 people in communities across western Massachusetts. With roots dating to the founding of Springfield City Hospital in 1873, Baystate Health has been providing skilled and compassionate health care in the Pioneer Valley for more than 140 years. Our mission is to improve the health of the people in our communities every day with quality and compassion.

The advancement of knowledge is a major component of our mission. We educate and train current and future caregivers, and are engaged in health research throughout our system.

With more than 12,000 team members, Baystate Health is one of western Massachusetts’ strongest economic engines, delivering over $2.6 billion in yearly economic impact (as of 2009). The diversity of our workforce enables us to meet our community’s needs with cultural competence and compassion. We’ve been recognized by the Human Rights Campaign as a national leader in providing inclusive and equitable healthcare.

In service of our mission, we work to bring health care out of the hospital and into the community. From support of community-based organizations, to programs that help prepare our young people for future success, to early interventions in wellness and nutrition, we aspire to deliver—and achieve—a higher state of caring in every relationship and at every stage of life.
