Notice to our patients about COVID-19

Hawthorn is committed to providing care for our patients in an environment that is safe.

Although COVID restrictions for vaccinated individuals have been lifted, masks will remain mandatory for all patients/visitors coming into Hawthorn facilities. Read more »

Testing: Patients having COVID-related symptoms will be directed to our Urgent Care Center. The patient will be evaluated by a provider before COVID testing is done. The Urgent Care does not perform COVID testing on asymptomatic individuals. Patients who do not have any symptoms and are requesting COVID testing due to exposure or travel should contact their Hawthorn PCP to be scheduled for testing in our drive-through Medical Garage. All testing done in the garage is by appointment only.

Vaccinations: When available, vaccines can be given to Hawthorn patients in the office. For information about availability and scheduling, patients should call their doctor’s office.

Vaccines are also available at several pharmacies in Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Fall River and New Bedford. Details about sites can be found on the State’s web site at vaxfinder.mass.gov.


Hawthorn is looking for qualified applicants for several positions. Read more »
