Lawrence General Hospital has completed a long range master plan with the goal to improve every facet of healthcare 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) on Prospect Street 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 "advanced leadership giving phase" of a capital campaign is underway with a handful of our closest supporters and leaders, as Lawrence General must raise at least $13,000,000 in multi-year pledges, in-kind contributions to the projects and new planned gifts/bequests to bring all these needed improvements to fruition. This campaign is the largest in Lawrence General's history, and we'll need support from the entire
community to reach our goal.
We currently have $7.2M in commitments from generous friends, 90% to our initial "Quiet Phase" goal and 55% to our tentative public goal of $13M.
