Notice to our patients about COVID-19

Throughout the pandemic, Hawthorn Medical has been committed to providing safe patient care, testing and caring for patients with suspected COVID, and now vaccinating staff and patients.

Safety: All patients coming into the building must wear a mask/face covering. Patients will be screened before entering our facilities. They will be asked about symptoms and have their temperature checked. Anyone reporting symptoms will be further evaluated by a member of our COVID nurse response team. We are also limiting the number of visitors who can accompany patients to appointments. If this is a concern, please call your doctor’s office.

Testing: Patients having COVID-related symptoms will be directed to our Urgent Care Center. The patient will be evaluated at a visit with 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 reasons 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: Hawthorn Medical had begun vaccinating our patients who are age 75 years and older. Our clinical and administrative staff worked quickly to set up twice-weekly vaccination clinics, working from a waiting list of thousands of patients. Appointments were being scheduled and the clinics were running smoothly. Our patients had expressed their thanks to us for an easy process in a facility that they were familiar with.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has decided that future vaccine supplies will be sent to their mass vaccination sites that include Gillette Stadium, Fenway Park and the Circuit City site in Dartmouth. Unfortunately, we have had to place a hold on future vaccination clinics and with no confirmed date for delivery of additional vaccine doses, Hawthorn is no longer able to accept patients on a wait list.

Our goal in setting up on-site vaccination clinics was to ensure that our patients could get their vaccinations quickly and conveniently and we are disappointed that our efforts are now on hold. Please check our web site, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates.

We are encouraging all of our eligible patients to schedule appointments at local pharmacies who have vaccines, the Bristol Community College site, or at mass vaccination sites. Information about sites, eligibility, and setting up an appointment can be found on the State’s web site at vaxfinder.mass.gov. In addition to this online resource, the State has set up a call center to help individuals with making an appointment. You can call 2 1 1 toll free for assistance.
