Field Hospitals At DCU Center In Worcester, UMass Lowell To Close This Week

WORCESTER (CBS) – Two more Massachusetts field hospitals set up for a surge in coronavirus patients in Worcester and Lowell will close this week. A Department of Public Health spokesperson said the DCU Center field medical station in Worcester is shutting down because “hospitals in the area are able to manage the care of both COVID-19 patients and others needing care.” The hospital opened six weeks ago and treated more than 150 patients with coronavirus.

The field hospital at UMass Lowell’s campus recreation center will also close in the coming days, according to Lowell General Hospital. Earlier this month, the field hospital on Cape Cod closed without seeing any coronavirus patients. There are still two other field hospitals in Massachusetts, one at the convention center in Boston and the other at UMass Dartmouth.
