Pictures for Patients

To help family, friends and patients stay connected, Lahey Hospital & Medical Center offers Pictures for Patients. If you are unable to visit a loved one in the hospital, this service allows you to email photographs to our Volunteer Services Department which will then be printed and delivered to the indicated person while they are an inpatient.

This service is available Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Simply email your photos to us along with the patient’s name and room number, and we will be happy to deliver them. Pictures sent after business hours will be delivered the next business day. (No protected information is shared.)

If you have any questions about the Pictures for Patients project, please contact Volunteer Services at 781-744-8803.


If you’re looking to reschedule an appointment or to make a telehealth appointment, please contact your provider for more information.
