BURLINGTON – Lahey Hospital & Medical Center celebrated a century of excellence while looking toward its future at its 100th Anniversary Celebration on September 6 at the Crowne Plaza in Woburn.

Susan Moffatt-Bruce, MD, PhD, President of Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, highlighted the hospital’s remarkable legacy of extraordinary, patient-centered care and recognized the dedicated care providers, donors and community who play a key role in making the hospital’s vision a reality. She said Lahey’s uniquely compassionate and supportive culture is paramount to its success in providing world-class, collaborative care to the community. 

"As we look to the future, we have tremendous excellence to build on. Our commitment, as leaders, is to continue to care deeply, ensuring we create caring spaces and environments and treat all our resources with care," Moffatt-Bruce said.

Throughout the evening, event attendees heard from several Lahey community members and leaders, including Board of Trustees Chair Jane C. Edmonds; Sidney Alexander, MD, a Lahey cardiologist for 60 years and a Nobel Prize laureate; Department of Surgery Chair Emeritus Patricia Roberts, MD; Executive Vice Chair of Operations for Radiology Jalil Afnan, MD; and fellows Natalie Dal’bo, MD, and Miguel Dorante, MD. In addition, Kevin Tabb, MD, President and CEO of Beth Israel Lahey Health (BILH), underscored Lahey’s 100 years of innovation and leadership in health care, as well as its critical role in the BILH system.  Most recently, Lahey announced a new partnership with the UMass Chan School of Medicine to establish a regional campus in Burlington that will emphasize leadership, health systems science and interprofessional education, preparing students to lead and create solutions to future challenges in health care. The first cohort of medical students participating in the program will begin in August 2024.
