Lawrence General Hospital is a private, non-profit community hospital providing the Merrimack Valley and southern New Hampshire with high quality, high-value medical care for the whole family. For more than 135 years, the dedicated doctors, nurses and staff of Lawrence General have been committed to strengthening the hospital and its community. With an annual census of 12,000 inpatients, 73,000 emergency visits and 200,000 outpatient visits, LGH is a vibrant institution with a promising future in the Merrimack Valley.
Lawrence General is proudly affiliated with both Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center. These affiliations ensure LGH patients have expanded availability of specialty services and clinics available locally, greatly decreasing the need to travel to Boston for high-quality care. In the South Pavilion, patients have access to Women’s Imaging and MRI services. This modern, attractive, and efficient facility has ample parking and, with its own outside entrance, allows patients to visit without having to enter the main hospital building.
A private and relaxing area of the center is dedicated to providing diagnostic and imaging procedures specifically for women’s health. Separate changing and waiting areas are available, and mammograms, ultrasound examinations and breast MRI are performed at the Center. Breast biopsies are also available. Private consultation areas are provided, and our Breast Health Coordinator is available to help guide women in making informed decisions about their health.
The South Pavilion is also home to the Ambient Experience MRI. A product of Philips Healthcare, the Ambient Experience is designed to alleviate the anxiety some patients experience while having an MRI examination.
Outpatient 3T MRI services are provided at Merrimack Valley Health Services. This attractive facility is located near Merrimack College in North Andover.
Lawrence General has an award-winning website offering information in English and Spanish about the hospital and its services.
