Welcome to the Alternative Care Site
Site closure: 2/14/2021
Due to the decrease in COVID-19 hospitalizations, Lowell General Hospital will be closing the Alternative Care Site (ACS) field hospital located at the UMass Lowell Recreation Center effective Sunday, February 14.
Effective immediately, we will no longer be taking external referrals to the Alternative Care site. If you are facing capacity constraints and would like to reach a member of our care team to discuss other support options that may be available, please call 978-942-2420 and leave a message with your name, the organization you are calling from, and the best telephone number to reach you at.
We have been honored to partner with the Governor’s Office, UMass Lowell and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) to provide acute care services to support patients with the COVID-19 virus. We are excited to shift resources towards vaccination efforts to help protect the community we serve.
