Southcoast Health is Here for You

Jun 2, 2023

Southcoast Health is actively identifying how we can best support those across the region, including the patients, providers, and staff, affected by the closure of Compass Medical.

Consisting of Charlton Memorial, St. Luke’s, and Tobey hospitals, Southcoast Health additionally provides six urgent care centers across the South Coast region conveniently located in Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Fall River, Lakeville, Seekonk, and Wareham. Our Emergency Departments and Urgent Care Centers are open to provide care for patients with emergent and urgent medical needs respectively. Additional location information and hours of operation are available on our website.

It is important not to delay seeking the care you need. Please visit Know Where to Go for Your Medical Care | Southcoast Health to help direct you to the appropriate access point. If you or a loved one is experiencing a medical emergency call 911 immediately.

We encourage all affected patients seeking care at Southcoast Health to reach out through our designated Compass Medical patient line at 508-973-9911 for assistance connecting with a new primary or specialty care team. We are working to support as many new patients as possible.

However, like many health systems across the state, we are experiencing delays with new patient access due to widespread staffing challenges across the industry. All new patients will be scheduled based on patient’s clinical needs and provider availability.
