Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, Burlington, encompasses an ambulatory care center serving more than 3,000 patients each day, a 317-bed hospital and a Level II Trauma Center (as certified by the American College of Surgeons).

With more than 39 medical and surgical specialties and various ancillary services, including on-site Pharmacy, Laboratory Medicine, Anesthesiology and Radiology, Lahey Hospital & Medical Center embraces the unique vision that Frank Lahey, MD, had when he founded a group practice in 1923: that every component of a patient’s health care would be coordinated under one roof. Lahey specialists share expertise and work closely together to ensure all of a patient’s medical needs are met.

Lahey Hospital & Medical Center is a teaching hospital of Tufts University School of Medicine. In addition, many of our physicians hold teaching assignments at Harvard Medical School and Boston University School of Medicine.

Like its approach to patient care, Lahey Hospital & Medical Center's research efforts often cross medical disciplines. At any given time, there are roughly 300 scientific studies under way at Lahey. By offering patients the chance to participate in clinical trials, we provide access to the latest treatment options available.

A recent facility expansion on the Burlington campus added medical/surgical beds, operating rooms, a new and expanded surgical intensive care unit, new clinical space for the Institute of Urology, and new space for the Sophia Gordon Cancer Center.
