  • Fairview Hospital has been caring for the southern Berkshire, tri-state community since 1913, when it was established. The hospital got its name from its location “on The Hill” overlooking Great Barrington.

For more than a century, Fairview Hospital has been a safety net for the Great Barrington community, who appreciate the facility’s small-town feel combined with its regionwide network of care.


A 25-bed critical access hospital, Fairview offers inpatient medical services, general surgery, orthopedics, and maternity services with 24-hour emergency and hospitalist coverage. Fairview also provides a full range of ambulatory surgical services including general surgery, gynecology, orthopedics, urology, plastic surgery, ophthalmology and gastroenterology.

Fairview Hospital offers the strength of the Berkshire Health Systems with the feel of a friendly community hospital, where caregivers work closely to provide high quality, compassionate, patient-centered care. - PHOTOS BY STEVE DONALDSON

The facility is not just for acute care—it also offers outpatient ancillary diagnostic and therapeutic services; wound care and hyperbaric oxygen therapy; cardiopulmonary rehabilitation; and physical and occupational therapy services. In addition, Fairview’s primary-care-affiliated practices and clinics support the health and well-being of residents.

If more care is needed, Fairview can help navigate further support through its affiliation with the Berkshire Health Systems.
