Mayor Sarno and HHS Commissioner Caulton-Harris Announce Homeless Testing to Start in Partnership with Baystate Health

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Health and Human Services (HHS) Commissioner Helen Caulton-Harris announced today that the City of Springfield in partnership with Baystate Health will have all systems in place to begin testing of our vulnerable homeless population starting tomorrow at the city’s Worthington Street site.

Mayor Sarno stated, “I am very thankful to Commissioner Caulton-Harris for her continued yeoman efforts and to Dr. Mark Keroack, President and CEO of Baystate Health, and his team for once again stepping up to the plate and delivering.  Additionally, working together, Baystate, with a providers note, will expand overall testing opportunities at their Carew and High Streets sites and per my request establish neighborhood-testing site by the end of this week at their Brightwood Health Center on Plainfield Street.  We are also working together on a stand up testing site at the Mason Square Health Center very shortly too.”
