We are a different kind of health system

At Wellforce, we bring together exceptional, value-driven providers who are setting a new standard for health care in Massachusetts. We believe patients should get the very best care and support delivered in a way that improves their lives. Our focus is on providing an unmatched experience for consumers and their care teams.

With four community hospital campuses, an academic medical center, a children’s hospital, home care and more than 2,000 physicians, Wellforce reaches from Cape Cod to beyond the New Hampshire border, allowing us to bring care and convenience to the community. We don’t believe that everyone should have to come to Boston for the best care; we bring Boston-level expertise to you.

Bringing together the strengths of academic medicine and community care 

Wellforce was created to provide Massachusetts hospitals and physicians with a new option for collaboration – bringing together the strengths of academic medicine and community care in a model that respects both equally. Wellforce was formed in 2014 by Circle Health (including Lowell General Hospital) and Tufts Medical Center as well as the physicians on New England Quality Care Alliance and the Lowell General Physician Hospital Organization.

On January 1, 2017, MelroseWakefield Healthcare, previously Hallmark Health, including MelroseWakefield Hospital, Lawrence Memorial Hospital and the Hallmark Physician Hospital Organization, joined Wellforce as an equal, founding member.

Understanding the importance and growing need for home health services, Wellforce expanded its reach to create one of the largest home health and hospice providers in the region. On October 1, 2018, Home Health Foundation joined Wellforce.
