Lahey Health is what’s next in healthcare providing a full continuum of integrated health services close to where our patients live or work. We are an affiliation between Northeast Health System and Lahey Clinic and comprise nationally recognized, award-winning hospitals—including an academic hospital and medical center, and community hospitals—primary care providers, specialist physicians, behavioral health services, post-acute programs such as home health services, skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities, and senior care resources located throughout northeastern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire.
We believe that the overall health and economic well-being of a community are enhanced when care is delivered close to home. When providers work together, we can deliver high quality care at a sustainable cost, which translates to higher value for our patients, insurers, and employers. Community hospitals can provide a superior patient experience and patients are treated in familiar settings, reducing stress and anxiety. Patients who access behavioral health and senior care services in the community setting also benefit. These local institutions are not-for-profit assets of the communities they serve and should remain vibrant community resources.
“At Lahey Health, we are making innovative, integrated healthcare more personal and more accessible. We believe in the importance of keeping healthcare local to keep costs down and patients happy and healthy,” said Lahey Health CEO Howard Grant. “The New England Council’s mission to support regional business, academic and health leaders is hugely important to us and our membership will allow us to stay in-tune with other New England leaders as we work to revolutionize the way healthcare is delivered in Massachusetts and beyond.”
