Dear Patients and Friends,
On March 1, 2022, we share exciting news about our organization and our healthcare partners.
For the past several years, Lowell General Hospital has been working closely with Tufts Medical Center, Melrose Wakefield Hospital, Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford, Home Health Foundation, and more than 2,000 physicians across Eastern Massachusetts and into New Hampshire. We joined together to reimagine healthcare, to bring care closer to home, to advance medicine and to focus on health as much as healing. Our partnership has flourished, and it’s time to make it clear that we are all working together as one for you.
We will do that by adopting a new system brand that is known and respected regionally and nationally, a name that will connect us all. We are excited to announce our new system name will be Tufts Medicine. This name highlights our strong and growing relationship with Tufts University and its School of Medicine. Together, we are expanding patient access to clinical trials and creating new opportunities for medical education in our region.
Lowell General Hospital – your trusted local organization – will maintain its name. The services and people you depend on at Lowell General Hospital all remain right here in your cities and neighborhoods to meet your healthcare needs. Because we will be using the Tufts Medicine system name, we will gradually transition away from using the Circle Health system name. This will make things clearer for our patients, families and communities. You will start to see our new logo in more places in the coming months.
Thank you for being part of the Lowell General Hospital community. We look forward to continuing our commitment to the people and health of the region. If you have any questions, please visit www.lowellgeneral.org/tuftsmedicineFAQs
