Emergency Medicine Opportunities Currently Available at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, MA, Approximately 25 Minutes from Downtown Boston

Lahey Health/Lahey Hospital and Medical Center (LHMC) is currently seeking ABEM or ABOEM certified or prepared Emergency Medicine Physicians with exceptional clinical acumen, well-developed interpersonal skills, and a strong commitment to patient centered care. LHMC is a Level II Trauma Center and a 317-bed, Tufts-affiliated teaching hospital consistently recognized as one of the best Academic Medical Centers in the country. The ED averages approximately 40,000 patients annually with a high level of acuity. It is staffed by 15 full time physicians, 9 advanced practitioners and a full complement of nursing and support staff. A new state of the art Emergency Medicine Center just opened last week. Here are just a few of the new features that will support exceptional care in the ED:

  • A 45,000-square-foot facility with 36 private rooms, four trauma bays, and a fast-track area for more quickly treating patients with less serious conditions;
  • An emergency radiology unit with two CT scanners and x-ray, enabling immediate consultation with radiologists;
  • A behavioral health unit where social workers and psychiatric staff can see patients in a private and safe manner;
  • Close proximity to the surgical ICU and the operating room, making transfers easier and faster;
  • A dedicated decontamination unit for patients with chemical and radiation exposure;
  • An on-site pharmacy where patients can fill their prescriptions before they leave;
  • New spaces that support better communication and coordination, including a private family consultation room and an office for Emergency Medical Services staff

Lahey Health has an additional ED in Peabody, MA that averages approximately 18,000 patient visits per year with a broad mix of high and low acuity cases and a 12% to 15% admission rate. The Peabody ED is staffed with 8 Board Certified Emergency Medicine physicians and approximately 32 nursing and support staff.
