Cooley Dickinson Health Care joins the MGH



MGH President Peter L. Slavin, MD, spoke to members of the Cooley Dickinson Health Care staff using telemedicine technology, above, after the Northhampton, Mass. hospital officially became an affiliate of the MGH and Partners HealthCare on July 1.

“We are pleased that Cooley Dickinson Hospital has become part of the MGH and look forward to working with the board, management, physicians and staff to help preserve and enhance the outstanding care that patients and families in western Massachusetts have counted on for so long,” Slavin said.

The MGH and Cooley Dickinson Hospital have enjoyed a successful collaboration in cancer care since 2009. Through this new closer affiliation, the two hospitals will build on that collaboration to ensure local access to high-quality, cost-effective care through telemedicine, cooperative clinical programs and shared expertise. The MGH also will be able to provide expertise and training to help Cooley Dickinson prepare for and implement population health management.
