    Why Lahey

    When Frank Lahey, MD, pioneered the concept of multidisciplinary group practice in 1923, his vision was unique: Every component of a patient's health care would be coordinated under one roof. Today, Lahey Hospital & Medical Center continues to provide and deliver a distinctive patient experience – and you, as a Lahey physician, can be a part of this.

    Lahey Hospital & Medical Center is a world-renowned teaching hospital affiliated with Tufts Medical School. Nearly 475 physicians and more than 4,000 nurses, therapists and other support staff work together to provide compassionate care and superior patient outcomes.
