Ten runners from Team Lahey will participate in the 2019 Falmouth Road Race on Sunday, August 18, in the team’s first outing as a New Balance Falmouth Road Race charity partner. They’ll be running to raise funds for one of the following Beth Israel Lahey Health affiliates:
• Addison Gilbert Hospital
• Beverly Hospital
• Lahey Health Behavioral Services
• Lahey Hospital & Medical Center
• Winchester Hospital
These affiliates are part of Beth Israel Lahey Health (BILH), a newly formed health system with services spanning Eastern Massachusetts. BILH includes eight community hospitals and Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, one of four academic and teaching hospitals in the system.
Lahey Hospital & Medical Center is a 335-bed academic medical center in Burlington that has been ranked among the state’s best by U.S. News & World Report. A teaching hospital for the Tufts University School of Medicine, it is also home to the leading liver transplant program in New England, boasts the only Level I Trauma Center north of Boston and offers patients access to clinical trials of new therapies for diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease and cataracts. Lahey clinicians pioneered low-dose computed tomography (CT) screening for early-stage lung cancer, a technique that is now used at hospitals nationwide.
Our community hospitals are consistently recognized for their excellent patient care and outcomes. Addison Gilbert Hospital in Gloucester received a Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) Exemplar Award in recognition of its commitment to caring for and meeting the needs of older adults. Beverly Hospital has been recognized by patients for outstanding orthopedic care and has become the fifth largest hospital in Eastern Massachusetts for total joint replacements. Winchester Hospital’s Ambulatory Surgery Center will soon become the only day surgery site in the state to offer minimally invasive robotic surgery.
We are grateful for our runners who inspire and amaze us. We are thankful for the donors who support them and our mission to provide superior health care, leading to the best possible outcome for every patient. And we are indebted to our lead sponsor, New Balance, as this program would not be possible without them.
Thank you for supporting Team Lahey!
