Fairlawn Rehabilitation Hospital CEO to lead effort driving equitable health in central Massachusetts

Peter Lancette, chief executive officer of Fairlawn Rehabilitation Hospital, an affiliate of Encompass Health, has been named chair of the 2023 Central Massachusetts Heart and Stroke Ball.

The Heart and Stroke Ball celebrates progress made through the dedication and passion of all who support the American Heart Association’s Heart of Central Massachusetts, a year-round effort aimed at saving and improving lives in the region.

“Peter exemplifies true leadership and commitment as a dedicated healthcare executive in central Massachusetts and is the ideal person to head our Heart and Stroke Ball campaign,” said Dr. David McManus, president of the American Heart Association’s Board of Directors in central Massachusetts.

“I am eager to work with the American Heart Association and its outstanding team of volunteers as we advocate for health equity and continue to educate individuals in our local community,” said Lancette. “Together, we must continue to strive to do all that we can to make a lasting impact on the health of central Massachusetts.”

The Central Massachusetts Heart and Stroke Ball will be held on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2023, at Mechanics Hall in Worcester. The annual event is a night to honor survivors, patrons and volunteers of the American Heart Association, the world’s leading nonprofit organization focused on heart and brain health.
