If you need hospitalization while your heart or lung problem is being treated, Winchester Hospital offers a full range of diagnostic, medical, surgical and specialty services. The physicians on our medical staff represent all medical specialties, and many are affiliated with Boston’s finest academic medical centers.
Our investment in advanced technology includes the recent addition of 16 telemetry beds, which continuously monitor patients' heart rates and rhythms. If a patient develops cardiac problems, the technology alerts staff members immediately so the patient can receive the appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
Winchester Hospital now has a total of 87 telemetry beds, which has enhanced our capabilities to care for patients recovering from heart- or lung-related events, at risk of such events and experiencing ongoing problems as a result.
