relocating to Northampton, names of hospitals, rehab or nursing homes in the area?

  1. I am a NH Rehab nurse with a year of experience, I will be moving to the northampton area in a few months and would love if someone could help me with some places a nurse may apply. Im not picky, any RN job would be great. Any other info about the area would be great too, like is it considered western MA or central, southern?? Thanks ahead of time.

    Hi Danielle! I went to nursing school in Amherst and it is considered Western MA. I know Cooley Dickins Hospital is in Northampton. Also there is Baystate Medical Center in Springfield. Mercy Medical Center is also in Springfield. Hope this helps!

    Most definitely Western MA. The biggest hospital in the area is BayState Medical Center in Springfield. There is also Shriner's Hospital for Children in Springfield... it's an orthopedic hospital, not a burn one. Those are the only hospitals in the area I know of... I'm from Boston so I don't know the area west of Worcester very well.

    Western MA. As others have said Coley Dickinson, Baystate, Mercy, there is also Holyoak medical center, Berkshire, Bayview, Franklin, Nobel, North Adams. Those are the hospitals UMASS uses for clinical sites.
