When Frank Lahey, MD, established his Boston clinic in 1923, his vision was unique: a multidisciplinary practice in which specialists would work as a team to vastly improve surgical outcomes. That vision grew to include primary care, and for nearly 100 years patients have benefited from this team-based, collaborative model of care — all offered under one roof. Lahey Hospital & Medical Center continues this tradition, offering a distinctive patient experience with extraordinary medical care.

This mission is supported by our generous donors, whose gifts are coordinated the Philanthropy Office with oversight by the Lahey Clinic Foundation Board of Trustees.
