NEW TREATMENTS FOR COVID-19 AVAILABLE AT UMASS MEMORIAL MEDICAL CENTER

If you recently tested positive for COVID-19, the COVID Treatment Center at the UMass Memorial Medical Center’s Hahnemann campus in Worcester offers treatments that can prevent your symptoms from getting worse and keep you out of the hospital.  These treatments are offered through a partnership with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH). 

Patients interested in receiving these treatments for COVID must have their primary care provider contact our Physician Referral Service at 800-431-5151 and request a referral to our COVID Treatment Center.  Providers in our center will assess patients to determine if they qualify for the treatments that we can provide in our clinic. 

Currently the DPH is managing the distribution of COVID medications that are coming from the Federal Government.  Restrictions are assigned to each of the approved medications by the Food and Drug Administration and the significant increase in patients requires us to prioritize patients who are at high risk for complications in managing a positive COVID diagnosis.   

Monoclonal antibodies are one of the treatments offered to patients in our clinic.  Monoclonal antibodies are human-made proteins that help your body fight off the virus that causes COVID-19.  In accordance with federal guidelines, the treatment is free, safe and easy to administer.  If administered within ten days of onset of COVID-19 symptoms, the one-time therapy is highly effective in neutralizing the virus and preventing symptoms from worsening.

 

When your appointment is scheduled the duration of your treatment will be shared with you.  The administrative assistant can answer any questions you have about your appointment at that time.  Please let us know if you would prefer that a medical interpreter be available to assist with communications at your appointment.

You should bring the following with you for your appointment:

  • Any prescription medications
  • Mobile phone
  • Glasses and/or hearing aids
