A Place Where Professionals Want to Work
At Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, patient care always comes first. Because of our focus on excellence in patient care, Lahey Hospital & Medical Center continues to attract the best people across all departments and disciplines.
The first requirement for creating this environment is the expectation that all colleagues, regardless of their job, will be treated with dignity and respect. Beyond that, colleagues are provided with a safe work environment where they feel confident in their daily practices, supported by modern technology.
Constantly scanning the market from which our colleagues are drawn, Lahey Hospital & Medical Center reviews benefits and pay practices to ensure we remain competitive. A variety of incentives are offered to encourage our colleagues to work the demanding shifts and schedules required for patient care.
Mandatory overtime is not part of our management practices at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center. Patient care staffing ratios are carefully engineered to meet patient acuity requirements.
A practice that is perhaps unique to Lahey involves our direct care staff reviewing patient acuity and matching patient needs to available care providers. Beds remain open only when they can be staffed according to these standards. This ensures the consistent delivery of quality patient care.
