LGH and the MV YMCA Announce Partnership
While Lawrence General Hospital and The Merrimack Valley YMCA have been working together for decades, in 2010 the two organizations formed a more formal partnership to better serve the needs of the region. The YMCA produces approximately $3,000,000 in health benefits to the region each year, and LGH is proud to partner with them in expanding these pursuits and benefits, as the Hospital offers over $4,200,000 in community benefits annually. Our new partnership includes co-sponsorships of major wellness events and programs such as the popular Youth Basketball and Itty Bitty Baseball Leagues and the Brickman Triathlon. Lawrence General also lends its expertise to the YMCA staff and offers educational seminars to the general public at YMCA locations on topics such as Nutrition and Diabetes Awareness. Lawrence General has also begun working with the YMCA to be the primary health and wellness provider within the major, new facility expansion slated for their proposed, new Andover location.
