About MelroseWakefield Hospital

MelroseWakefield Hospital has been the healthcare partner families trust on the good days, and challenging ones since 1893. We’re on a mission to empower people to live their best lives by providing exceptional care locally. Whether you need expert cardiac care, 24-hour emergency services, complex surgery or family-focused maternity services, you can trust in MelroseWakefield.

Who we are

Healthcare is changing, and so are we. We’ve come a long way since our story began on West Foster Street in Melrose more than 130 years ago — like how we restored one person's lost sense of sound by performing the world’s first-ever cochlear implant. Today, we're home to 20+ locations that offer a range of services from 50+ specialties. 

The true value of community healthcare is that people don’t have to travel far to receive top-notch, essential care. MelroseWakefield Hospital is a community care network that includes a breast health center, a cardiovascular center with a full-service cardiac catheterization lab and an operating room where we lead the way in advanced robotic surgery.

And beyond our doors, we’re committed to nurturing a strong, vibrant, healthy community. Everyone is welcome to participate in our more than 40 local health programs. Activities like our Safe Sitter© babysitting training for junior high students, fall prevention education for seniors and Baby Cafe breastfeeding groups make it easier for people to get the healthcare support they need.
