A note from Executive Director David Brabeck, MD

As I round on the floors during this global pandemic that challenges each of us locally, I am constantly reminded of the professionalism and teamwork that our Lahey colleagues exhibit each and every day.  

I am proud to repeatedly witness the teamwork, collegiality and selflessness that defines the character of our members. 

From medicine subspecialists and surgeons filling in much-needed critical care roles; to the core critical care team leading others through uncharted waters, to internists and surgeons focusing on telehealth visits to keep patients connected; to advanced practitioners being relied on more than ever before; to hospitalists leading the charge on general medicine patients; to residents and fellows of all stripes (our future alumni) stepping to the front of the line to care for our sickest COVID-19 patients; and many leaders from all manner of departments who have stepped up to create novel ways to address staffing, time, patient access and exhaustion challenges — I am proud to be part of this team.
