The UMass Memorial Medical Group Difference
UMass Memorial Medical Group is one of the largest and most experienced caregiver networks on the East Coast.
Our 1,100 medical group doctors see patients at more than 70 convenient locations in central Massachusetts. Our health care professionals are medical school faculty members, researchers and lifelong learners. Above all, they’re compassionate caregivers.
As part of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health effort to encourage the public to “trust the facts; get the vax” when they can, a recently tweeted PSA featured our own Neurosurgeon Mark Johnson, MD, PhD. Dr. Johnson discussed potential questions some may have about vaccine safety and shared why he’s getting the vaccine: “to protect me, my family and my patients.”
Malcolm Smith, MD, Chief of Orthopedic Trauma and Vice Chair of the Department of Orthopedics and Physical Rehabilitation, joined the Medical Center faculty on March 1, 2021. Dr. Smith is a renowned and experienced clinician who most recently served as Chief of the Orthopaedic Trauma Center at Massachusetts General Hospital. He is recognized nationally and internationally for his expertise in orthopedic trauma and fractures. “Dr. Smith was interviewed last Thursday by the New York Times to provide his expertise on the injuries sustained in Tiger Woods’ car accident and his opinion on whether Tiger Woods would ever return to his professional golf career,” said David Ayers, MD, The Arthur Pappas Chair of the Department of Orthopedics and Physical Rehabilitation. “We are thrilled to bring Malcolm’s experience and his wealth of knowledge to our patients at the Medical Center.” Patients requesting an appointment with Dr. Smith for fractures or post-fracture problems can call 855-UMASS-MD.
