Situation Update

Last updated on Thursday, November 20, 2014 1:07 PM EST


You may have heard that the Quincy Medical Center is closing at the end of the year or the beginning of next year.

We want you and your families to know that we are committed to providing continuous quality and timely healthcare to all of our Veterans and have requested emergency authority to lease permanent long-term space in the Quincy/Braintree area.

We don’t have all the answers yet, but VA Boston leadership is developing a plan to continue providing the personal care you receive with as little inconvenience to you as possible.

We understand you may be anxious about the closing but we will keep you informed as our plans take shape.

Should you have specific concerns please call 857-203-5879.
