Dr. Steven Lampert to Lead Lifespan Physician Group
Steven Lampert, MD, MBA, has been appointed president of Lifespan Physician Group (LPG), the state’s largest multispecialty physician group, effective Oct. 17.
Lampert, a cardiologist, joins LPG from Atrius Health in Newton, Massachusetts, where he served as senior vice president and regional medical director, responsible for the largest regional business unit of more than 1,000 employees. He previously worked at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates, also in Newton, last serving as interim chief medical officer while providing clinical leadership to the physician group practice.
“I could not be more excited about Dr. Lampert’s appointment or think of a better fit for this position. He has the experience, credentials and passion to bring LPG to the next level,” said Timothy J. Babineau, M.D., Lifespan president and CEO.
The not-for-profit LPG has more than 500 providers who offer a wide array of clinical specialties throughout the region. Babineau said Lampert will focus on bringing more physician groups together to build upon LPG’s trademark value-based, innovative care.
“I am committed to further enhancing our patients’ experience by improving access, quality, safety and assuring seamless continuity of care,” said Lampert. “A primary focus of LPG will be to create and implement new programs and initiatives between Lifespan and our physicians that will deliver superior care to the communities we serve.”
He added that he is looking forward to the challenge of organizing and positioning LPG to be successful under any future payment model.
Lampert received his medical degree from the University of Vermont in Burlington and completed a clinical and research fellowship in cardiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard School of Public Health. He holds a master’s of business administration from Boston University Graduate School of Management.
During two decades at Harvard Vanguard, Lampert also served as senior medical director for hospital relations and medical management, director of medical specialties and as chief of the department of cardiology.
