About Lowell General PHO

The Lowell General Physician Hospital Organization (PHO) is a non-profit organization comprised of approximately 400 member physicians and our hospital partner, Lowell General Hospital. The PHO was established in 1995 with the goal of developing a local, integrated delivery system providing outstanding quality care to patients in the Greater Lowell area.

Our primary care physicians specialize in the following disciplines: Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and Family Medicine. Our primary care physicians consistently earn the highest rankings in quality and efficiency from local and national managed care organizations. For the fifth consecutive year, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care awarded our Primary Care Physicians with their Distinctive Honor Roll Award. Many of these physicians reach the Top 10% in Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts' quality and clinical outcome measures.

Our primary care physicians have access to highly trained and highly skilled specialty care physicians through the PHO. These specialists provide state of the art specialty care supported by clinical expertise and advanced technology offered at Lowell General Hospital. Our member specialists share the vision to create a healthcare environment that demands quality, promotes wellness, improves outcomes, eliminates errors, enhances communication, and creates a full spectrum of healthcare value to its patients.

Our delivery system strives to provide this for every patient, every day. It's who we choose to be, for our patients.


The PHO is proud to be part of the Tufts Medicine Integrated Network, a population health enterprise and value based care contracting entity comprising 2,300 primary care and specialist physicians, in private and employed practices, working in community and hospital settings. The Wellforce CIN's purpose is to build healthier communities and to create greater professional and personal satisfaction for its participating physicians. The Network was launched in July 2021 by building upon the legacies of two long standing, high performing organizations our PHO and New England Quality Care Alliance (NEQCA).
