Founded in 1889, Morton Hospital is an acute care community hospital providing comprehensive inpatient, outpatient and 24/7 emergency services to the greater Taunton community. In the ever-changing field of health care, Morton Hospital has maintained its community, family-like feel, all while keeping pace with the latest advances in medical technology. We’ve recently enhanced and introduced several service lines and innovative technologies, including a Bariatric surgery program, MAKOplasty® robotic-assisted orthopedic surgery, and the latest in open MRI imaging technology.
Morton Hospital is routinely recognized for excellence in patient care. For the second consecutive year, we’ve been named a Leapfrog Group “Top Hospital” for quality and patient safety. In addition to also receiving six straight “A” grades from Leapfrog’s Hospital Safety Score, in 2013 Morton Hospital was named one of our country’s “100 Great Community Hospitals” by Becker’s Hospital Review for quality of care and service to our community. – less
