Lawrence General Hospital has completed a long range master plan with the goal to improve every facet of health care services we provide to you, your family and neighbors. We are driven by a single overriding goal – to make sure that you, your family, your friends and your neighbors have access to local, outstanding, effective, efficient care whenever the need arises. To better serve you, to expand surgical options and specialties locally, and to attract even more outstanding surgeons to our Merrimack Valley region, over the next few years we will be undertaking one of the largest projects in our history - $75,000,000 in expansion and renovation projects totaling nearly 68,000 square feet.
Our expansion plans include new operating rooms/suites in a new, 42,250 square foot Surgical Center ($56M) and the addition of private patient rooms within the complete renovation of multiple inpatient units including Russell 4 and Russell 5 ($17M).
We are also adding Tomosynthesis 3D Mammography imaging systems here at Lawrence General and at Andover Medical Center - four new units to create the most comprehensive 3D mammography program in our region. The cost of the new Tomosynthesis technology alone is $2M and the new equipment and service is being funded via philanthropic support.
The capital campaign is underway as Lawrence General needs to raise well in excess of $10,000,000 to bring these needed improvements to fruition. Naming opportunity information is located here. Newly documented planned gifts and bequests are also being counted in this campaign.
