Partnerships and Affiliations
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
Lawrence General Hospital has been a proud clinical affiliate of Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center for about a decade. The affiliation enables Lawrence General to enhance clinical programs in the greater Merrimack Valley, offering patients an expanded roster of specialty services and clinics locally and greatly decreasing the need to travel to Boston for high quality care. With the affiliation, patients have increased local access to all specialties of a Harvard-affiliated teaching hospital and improved coordination.

Their pediatricians are on site at Lawrence General 24/7 to coordinate hospital care with local pediatricians.

Greater Lawrence Family Medicine Residency Program & Health Center
Lawrence General is proud to partner with the Greater Lawrence Family Health Center on many health-related initiatives. We provide substantial support for this well-recognized four-year Family Medicine Residency Program, which draws many of the top medical students to the Merrimack Valley each year. Developed in 1994 as the nation’s first accredited community health center-sponsored family medicine residency program, this model program has received national recognition for providing not only superior academic training, but also for the unique cultural experiences the residents gain.
Lawrence General Hospital serves as the primary inpatient and emergency care provider for the local community as well as the only area teaching hospital proudly hosting residents of the program during their clinical rotations. As a result of our teaching partnership with the Residency, the number of primary care physicians in urban Lawrence has increased from only three in 1994 to approximately 100 today. Lawrence General provides financial support to the Health Center and the Lawrence Family Medicine Residency program, and more than 200 of the hospital’s medical staff members teach residents in their offices, in lectures and on rounds.
