FRAMINGHAM – For the last three consecutive weekends, MetroWest Medical Center has been diverting ambulances from Framingham Union Hospital from its labor & delivery unit.

SOURCE media has been reaching out to the Tenet-owned hospital for a statement since Christmas weekend. This afternoon, January 12, the hospital’s spokesperson sent a response.

“Over the holidays, MetroWest Medical Center experienced unanticipated staffing challenges that impacted the labor and delivery service. We took immediate action for the safety of our patients including adding resources and support,” said Tenet Healthcare Director of Public Relations Shelly Weiss Friedberg.  

“The labor and delivery service is fully staffed and able to welcome families choosing our hospital for the birth of their babies,’ said Tenet Healthcare spokesperson.
