About Wing Memorial Hospital:
Wing Memorial Hospital has a rich history of caring for the health of the citizens of the Quaboag Hills and Pioneer Valley. The 74-bed hospital, established in 1913, provides a broad range of emergency, medical, surgical and psychiatric services to residents of Palmer, Monson, Wilbraham, Ludlow, Belchertown and nearby towns.
In 1968, the vision of providing outpatient health care for the community became a reality with the opening of Wing Memorial Medical Center in Palmer. Four additional medical centers were built to reach out to our communities. Wing Memorial Medical Center of Ludlow was the last to be dedicated in 1996.
In 1999, Wing Memorial Hospital became a member of UMass Memorial Health Care, ensuring that the hospital will be able to continue to offer a high standard of care and expand services in the community.
Wing Memorial Hospital is fully accredited by the Joint Commission, and is designated a Primary Stroke Service by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
