Tufts Medical Center


On February 28, 2020, the United States executed a Settlement Agreement under Title III of the ADA with Tufts Medical Center to ensure physical access for individuals with disabilities by removing barriers at public and common use areas, providing additional accessible patient rooms, and improving effective communication for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing by adding new policies and procedures. On February 2, 2023, the United States entered into a two-year extension and addendum to the Settlement. The extension was necessary because of the COVID-19 pandemic, to allow Tufts to complete barrier removal to accessible patient rooms and for the United States to verify compliance.
