Pentucket Medical & Lawrence General Expanding Regional Health System
Lawrence General Hospital (LGH) and Pentucket Medical Associates (PMA) have announced plans to expand their regional health care services. Together, Lawrence General and Pentucket Medical will establish Andover Medical Center & ExpressCare, a new medical facility to be located in Andover and slated to open in early 2014. Andover Medical Center & ExpressCare will provide primary care, pediatric care, urgent care, imaging and lab services, women's services, mammography, pediatric neurology and more for the local area, located close to home for residents of the Andovers and the surrounding communities.
“For several years, we have been working with our outstanding local physicians to expand primary and specialty care services right here in the Merrimack Valley,” states Dianne J. Anderson, President and CEO, Lawrence General Hospital. “This new center is only one way we are enhancing local access to high quality, affordable health care, and eliminating the need for patients and families to travel into Boston for key specialty services.”
“Access to care that is timely and convenient is an important part of medicine’s future,” says Pentucket Medical President Thomas L. Fazio, MD. “Offering the appropriate mix of health care services in a setting close to home is an important step into this future. Pentucket Medical has a longstanding relationship with Lawrence General, and this provides a sound basis for this exciting evolution.” For more information about Pentucket Medical, click here.

Working with the Lupoli Companies, Andover Medical Center and ExpressCare will be located near the intersections of Route 133 and Interstate 93 in Andover, across from the IRS building. For more information about the Lupoli Companies, click here.
