The Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, formerly known as Lahey Clinic, is a physician-led nonprofit teaching hospital of Tufts University School of Medicine based in Burlington, Massachusetts. The hospital was founded in Boston in 1923 by surgeon Frank H. Lahey, M.D., and is managed by Lahey Health. U.S. News & World Report has cited it several times on its list of "Americas Best Hospitals" in the category of urology. Lahey Clinic was founded in Boston, Massachusetts in 1923 by world-renowned combat surgeon Dr. Frank H. Lahey. It grew rapidly during its first three decades of operation, often outpacing its physical capacity in Bostons Kenmore Square. During this time, Lahey Clinic patients occupied the majority of beds at neighboring Boston hospitals including the New England Deaconess Hospital (now Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center), and the New England Baptist Hospital. Laheys Commonwealth Avenue facilities grew increasingly overcrowded. Faced with an expanding patient base (notable patients included former United States president John F. Kennedy), discussions for a new facility were drafted in partnership with New England Baptist Hospital, which long held close ties to Lahey Clinic. A partnership with New England Deaconess was also considered. However disagreement between administrators led Lahey officials to seek other options outside of downtown Boston. A transition to its current facility in Burlington, Massachusetts was completed in November 1980 under the leadership of then CEO, Dr. Robert E Wise. In 1994, Lahey opened an additional facility in Peabody, Massachusetts. Lahey hosts several residency programs including Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Diagnostic Radiology, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Otolaryngology, Orthopaedic Surgery, Urology, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and Dermatology. Faculty hold professorships at Tufts University School of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, and Boston University School of Medicine. In addition, Lahey hosts extensive fellowship training in Cardiology & Interventional Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Interventional Pulmonology, Bariatric, Hand Surgery, Sleep Medicine, and Stroke.
