Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, Burlington, serves 3,000 patients every day through our 335-inpatient hospital beds, our ambulatory care center, 24-hour emergency department and American College of Surgeons verified Level I trauma center. We are a teaching hospital of Tufts University School of Medicine and many of our physicians hold teaching assignments at Harvard Medical School and Boston University School of Medicine.
With more than 50 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.
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.
