Holyoke Medical Center
Our Mission

The MISSION of Holyoke Medical Center is to serve the health needs of the community in a high quality and efficient manner.

Our History

Holyoke Medical Center originally opened its doors in 1893 as Holyoke City Hospital.  Former Congressman and Mayor, William Whiting, led a group to make a non-sectarian Hospital in Holyoke a reality. In 1927 the name of the hospital was changed to Holyoke Hospital, to better clarify that the institution was not a municipality.  The name was changed once more in 2003 to Holyoke Medical Center. 

Our Size

What started as a 40-bed hospital in 1893 has grown to be a 198-bed facility with 1,200 employees.  Each year Holyoke Medical Center admits more than 7,500 patients, while the Emergency Department currently experiences an annual volume of more than 45,000 visits.

Our Community
