Clinical Focus

Dr. Kanner is on the active medical staff of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Newton-Wellesley Hospital, and Beth Israel Needham. Dr. Sobel is on staff at Newton-Wellesley Hospital. Consequently, Orchard Health Care participates in the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center network as well as the Partners Health Care network.

Dr. Kanner has strong ties to many other colleagues and institutions in the unsurpassed Harvard Medical School teaching network, where he has been a faculty member for many years. These include the Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

In seeking specialist or hospital care for his patients, the key issue Dr. Kanner and Dr. Sobel consider, with the patient, is which person or institution will offer that patient the best care. Consequently, Orchard Health Care does not restrict its medical referrals to any single institution or network.
