WORCESTER – Governor Charlie Baker announced today that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, through MEMA, has requested and received approval for a Field Medical Station that will provide additional medical care capacity as the state plans for a surge in cases.

The federal Strategic National Stockpile has approved a 250-bed field medical station that will be deployed to the DCU Center in the City of Worcester this week, said the Baker-Polito administration.

This temporary facility will be managed by UMass Memorial and staffed by a partnership including the City of Worcester and others.

The temporary field medical center will be used to treat lower acuity patients who still need monitoring.
