Winchester Hospital, Lahey Health plan to link

Winchester Hospital’s board has signed a letter of intent to affiliate with Lahey Health, the parent organization of Lahey Clinic in Burlington, in the latest example of a community hospital seeking to join a larger health care network as the medical market consolidates.

In a joint statement released late Tuesday afternoon, the two parties said they were teaming up to better coordinate care for the patients in communities stretching from Northeastern Massachusetts into Southern New Hampshire. The presidents of Lahey and Winchester both declined requests to discuss their affiliation plans.
