Acute Care Hospital Phase 1 Reopen Attestation Form 

During the COVID-19 public health emergency to date, in order to ensure Massachusetts’ health care system had the capacity to address the pandemic, some health care services and procedures needed to be limited or put on hold temporarily, while many services were conducted remotely using telehealth. Emergency services and other essential health and human services continued during this time.

As of May 18th, 2020, the Commonwealth issued new guidelines to hospitals and health care providers in accordance with the state’s four-phase reopening plan, to allow some non-emergency procedures or deferred care that may now need attention. Information about the reopening plan is available at the Commonwealth's Reopening Website.

Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton, Inc. has submitted the Acute Care Hospital Phase 1 Reopen Attestation Form to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) on May 21, 2020.  By having submitted this form, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton, Inc. attests to meeting the Phase 1 criteria and standards in the DPH Hospital Reopening Guidance.
