New Primary Care Office Open at NCH

A new primary care office was unveiled today at Nantucket Cottage Hospital, a space that is the new home for the practices of Dr. Diane Pearl and Dr. Jock Lawrason.

Formerly the location of the hospital’s physical therapy department, the new space has been completely renovated to better serve patients and allow staff to operate efficiently and cooperatively. The initiative will also allow the hospital to expand its specialty clinics area, increasing the number and frequency of visits by physician specialists from the mainland.

Dr. Pearl, who opened her internal medicine practice on Nantucket in 1990, will be relocating from her longtime office on the Vesper Lane side of the hospital campus.  Dr. Lawrason, who serves as the hospital’s chief medical officer, hospitalist physician and pulmonary medicine consultant, will also see his primary care patients in the new office.

Both Dr. Pearl and Dr. Lawrason, along with their staff members, moved into the new space on Monday, June 15.

This project was made possible by the generous donations of the Hospital Thrift Shop, as well as a bequest from the estate of the late Katherine Lodge.

Hello Jock,
I’ve just heard about the sudden influx of 2nd home owners on Nantucket. We’re also seeing it here at Klemm RE in Litchfield County. Thinking about you and how busy you’ll be given your specialty – how lucky the NCH patients are. Please remember to take care of yourself. xx, Bev & Woody Mosch
