As the clinical partner of UMMS, UMass Memorial Health Care provides residents in all generalist and specialist programs attractive opportunities for supervised experiences in both tertiary and community practice. UMass Memorial Medical Center, the academic medical center of UMass Memorial Health Care, is the region's advanced tertiary care referral center and comprises three Worcester campuses - Memorial, University, and Hahnemann - with some 800 in-patient beds and 40 operating rooms. The Medical Center's reputation is further enhanced through advanced laser technology, off-pump cardiac bypass surgery, minimally invasive surgical techniques, bone marrow and solid organ transplants, the region's most advanced and active cardiac catheterization labs and a sophisticated breast care center.
The Medical Center offers comprehensive and sophisticated technology and support services, providing the region with specialists acclaimed for their work in such areas as obstetrics and gynecology, cancer, cardiology, surgery, orthopedic care, endocrinology, neurology, psychiatry and trauma. These specialty services complement the outstanding primary care services that the system provides at its main campuses and through its community-based primary care network.
UMass Memorial Medical Center serves as the region's most comprehensive provider of emergency services in Central and Western Massachusetts. At its University campus, the Medical Center recently opened a new, three-story, 264,000 square-foot Emergency Department, called the Lakeside Expansion, featuring on-site MRI capabilities, advanced radiological services, new operating rooms, an additional surgical care unit, emergency mental health services and a Level I trauma center for children, teens and adults. The University Campus is also home to Life Flight, New England's first hospital-based air ambulance.
The Medical Center provides the region's only comprehensive pediatric services through the Children's Medical Center (CMC), offering specialists in every pediatric health field from psychiatry to surgery. The CMC includes the Center for Women and Children and the region's only Level III Newborn Intensive Care Unit on the Memorial Campus, and a pediatric intensive care unit and pediatric AIDS treatment program on the University Campus.
Patients requiring day surgical services and specialty care in the areas of dermatology, ophthalmology, cosmetic, and hand and upper extremities, are treated at the Hahnemann campus, which also houses a dialysis center and primary care physician practices.
