Official Date of Wing Transition to Baystate Health
The official transition date is planned for Monday, September 1, which is Labor Day. We are planning a public announcement and event for Friday, September 5. As of September 1, the hospital will be renamed Baystate Wing Hospital. Both internal and external signage will be updated during the first week of September.
Employee ID Badges
To ensure your current building and I.T. access is not interrupted when the transition occurs, a temporary Baystate Wing Hospital badge will be provided for you to place over your existing Wing Memorial badge. This will allow you to continue to use the technology embedded in your current badge. Your name and title will appear the same. New badges to replace these and your red KRONOS badge will be issued at the end of November and early December 2014.
