COVID-19 Series (1): Lessons From Our Military And How We Can Help Ourselves And Each Other – Featuring Brigadier General Jack Hammond


The entire Home Base staff has launched a new virtual resource program - Operation Health At Home - which will feature our experts on the topics of nutrition, fitness, mindfulness and mental health. Fresh curated content will be released daily on this site and through Home Base social channels. During these extraordinary times, it is important that we all work together to support each other and at Home Base, we take this responsibility to heart.


The Emergency Response Fund was established to support Massachusetts General Hospital’s immediate response to devastating events like the fast-moving global spread of COVID-19, the novel coronavirus. Mass General’s Hospital Incident Command System (HICS) team, which has been active since late January, is continuing to monitor the disease spread and the changing guidelines while directing the hospital’s ongoing response to this evolving global health crisis.

Our emergency preparedness measures are comprehensive. Fail-safe and rigorously-tested procedures are in place to deal with cases as they arise. The combination of deep subject matter expertise and strong management systems ensures that our patients and the community are receiving the best possible care from our clinicians during this volatile public health situation
