NORTH ADAMS, Mass. – The Emergency Room at North Adams Regional Hospital is official closed.

The Massachusetts Nurses Association says the temporary restraining order keeping the North Adams Regional Hospital open, has been lifted.

The hospital closed early Friday afternoon but the ER was expected to stay open until Saturday night.

But NewsChannel 13 has learned that the ER has closed and Police are evacuating all personnel and occupiers.

This comes after days of protesting by hospital employees and supporters, trying to save only hospital in the immediate North Adams area.
