Welcome to the Baldwin Makepeace Emergency Center
A $25 million capital project funded in part by philanthropic contributions from the community
Tobey Hospital has a rich history of community support beginning with Alice Tobey Jones. Over the decades, the Baldwin and Makepeace families, as well as many other families across the South Coast region, have been instrumental in ensuring Tobey Hospital’s continued growth and expansion.
“Southcoast Health is proud to honor these contributions with the naming of the new emergency center,” said Michelle Loranger, Executive Director of Philanthropy at Southcoast Health. “As we build a new and expanded Tobey emergency center to serve our greater Wareham region, it is fitting that the names Baldwin and Makepeace will grace this critical community resource.”
This exciting renovation and expansion includes:
- A space totaling 30,000 sq. ft. which can accommodate 40,000 visits annually.
- 27 treatment rooms including dedicated rooms for bariatric patients, behavioral health patients and patients in need of advanced life saving and isolation/decontamination.
- Increased capacity to accommodate the growing needs of the community.
- Larger, private rooms with access to the latest treatment technologies at the bedside.
- Enhanced areas for greater patient comfort, safety, privacy and infection control.
- Improved workspaces for staff and sight lines from a centralized nursing station.
- Improved triage and hospital throughput, resulting in shorter wait times for everyone needing care.
