New Master Plan & Eventual Capital Campaign
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, 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 on the LGH main campus will occur over the next 3-5 years.
Our master plan has identified major needs for facility and capital improvements, including but not limited to: new operating rooms/suites; the construction of a new, 42,250 square foot Surgical Building; the addition of private patient rooms; the complete renovation of major inpatient units including Russell 4 and Russell 5 and more. These improvements will allow us to become the top, not-for-profit regional medical center that we strive to be.
We will also be opening Andover Medical Center (AMC) with our colleagues at Pentucket Medical. The 10,000 square foot LGH floor will feature services for women, including ob/gyn and women's imaging, and may include two of the only Tomosynthesis 3-D mammography imaging systems in the region. The new Tomosynthesis equipment at AMC will come to fruition via philanthropic support. We also hope to add two Tomo units on the Lawrence General main campus as well, again dependent on a successful fund raising campaign.
A capital campaign raising well in excess of $10,000,000 will be necessary to bring all these local improvements to fruition.
