Lawrence General, BIDMC getting closer
BIDMC and Lawrence General Hospital are looking to build on their relationship.
Lawrence General Board of Trustees has voted to build on a successful partnership in cardiovascular services and formalize its affiliation with BIDMC. The new affiliation will enhance clinical programs in the greater Merrimack Valley, increase local access to all specialties of a Harvard-affiliated teaching hospital, and improve coordination of care through an integrated electronic medical record system.
In a related action, the Choice Plus Network, LGH's independent physician association, has voted to formalize its own collaborative relationship with the Beth Israel Deaconess Physician Organization (BIDPO) for physician network integration and contracting and to enhance clinical affiliations and increase patient access to top quality care in northeastern Massachusetts.
