President's Message

Dear Friends,

Deborah WilsonThis is an exciting time in the life of Lawrence General! Driven by a mission to be the health care resource our community needs, we are offering expanded access in new locations in the region and more services you need, so you don’t have to travel for health care. With highly accredited programs, like Cardiovascular, Weight Management and Bariatrics, Trauma, Cancer Care, Women’s Health Imaging and more, our high-quality care is well recognized. Health care services are most helpful if they are convenient and responsive as well as high quality, and that is our goal as your community-focused hospital and health network.

Though we are more than 140 years old, it’s a new day for us, with renovated pediatric and adult inpatient units, a brand new, technologically advanced surgical center, more primary care physicians and specialists than ever before, highly skilled nurses and other caregivers, and a culture that listens to patients’ voices, supports families, and provides the kind of high quality care you expect and deserve. If you haven’t been to Lawrence General lately, you might not recognize us!

We have opened multiple sites in the region where you can access lab and imaging and other services, including Andover Medical Center on Route 133 in Andover, and Methuen Family Health Center on Pelham Street in Methuen. Like the main hospital campus on General Street in Lawrence, both these outpatient sites are easily accessible from the highway, with plenty of parking and the same patient-centered philosophy.

We can take care of most health care concerns right here in our own community with a personalized touch that is the hallmark of local care, but we also have strong connections with Boston academic medical centers through our clinical affiliations with Beth Israel Lahey Health and Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center.

More and more of your neighbors are discovering the Lawrence General of today is not what you’d expect. If you already choose Lawrence General for your care, we thank you! If not, next time you need health services we invite you to reach out to us. It will be our honor to serve you.

Deborah Wilson

President and Chief Executive Officer
