Massachusetts General Hospital and Emerson team up on clinic
Massachusetts General Hospital and Concord, MA-based Emerson Hospital are collaborating on an advanced cardiac care clinic that will move some of MGH's expertise to the suburbs. The new center will include specialists in heart electrical systems, women's heart disease, and advanced heart failure. The MGH-Emerson Cardiovascular Center will be located in a medical specialty building about a mile from Emerson. The collaboration follows a trend of academic medical centers creating suburban outposts, giving them an expanded geographic reach and a flow of patient referrals. The suburban hospitals add advanced services without having to hire doctors, and get to piggyback on the better-known hospital's brand name.
