Partners HealthCare, Hallmark Health, Massachusetts General Hospital and North Shore Medical Center are proposing a new partnership that brings together the resources of four community hospital campuses and offers patients north of Boston better, more coordinated and cost-effective health care.
The plan offers more primary care to the region, upgrades community hospital campuses and invests in psychiatry and behavioral health at a time the state is losing much-needed capacity.
The affiliation between Partners HealthCare and Hallmark Health includes investments in Hallmark’s Melrose-Wakefield campus and transforms Lawrence Memorial Hospital to a short-stay inpatient and ambulatory facility operated by Mass General.
Furthermore it presents new possibilities for improving health care for residents north of Boston.
