Lawrence General Expands Affiliation With Beth Israel Deaconess

Lawrence (Mass.) General Hospital, a 189-bed independent community hospital, has expanded its clinical affiliation with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.

As part of the deal, LGH will join Beth Israel Deaconess Care Organization, which is BIDMC's accountable care organization. The move will build on LGH's affiliation with BIDMC, which has been in place in 2011 and focuses on cardiovascular, bariatric surgery, gynecologic oncology and intensive/critical care services.

LGH will still retain full governance and autonomy of its operations. The deal only furthers the hospital's ability to partner with BIDMC for population health in the area. The Massachusetts Health Policy Commission must approve the affiliation.
