Union Hospital emergency room closed on Sunday

LYNN — Union Hospital closed its emergency room Sunday at 11:59 p.m.

The closure of Union's ER coincided with the opening of a new, expanded emergency department at Salem Hospital, which has been relocated to One Dove Ave., and is accessible to patients from Jefferson Avenue or via a new access road that cuts through the Salem campus between the Highland Avenue and Dove Avenue entrances.

The new emergency department is part of Partners Healthcare's $207 million expansion of North Shore Medical Center on the Salem campus, which is consolidating Salem and Union hospitals.
