  • Our annual census numbers average 12,000 inpatients, 70,000 emergency visits, 1,800 births and 200,000 outpatient visits.
  • Our Cardiac Care Program and Catheterization Laboratory provides for both emergency and elective angioplasty. Our affiliation with the CardioVascular Institute of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center means that our Cardiac Care services rank amongst the very best in the state.  Our "door to balloon" times average under 65 minutes, with the Gold Standard being 90 minutes.
  • Lawrence General is the first hospital in New England, and first hospital in the nation without cardiac surgery on site, to achieve the Accreditation for Cardiovascular Excellence.

  • Lawrence General Hospital has been recognized as a Community Value Five-Star Hospital based upon cost and charge structures, financial viability, plant reinvestment and quality performance. 
  • Our Emergency Center is the one of the busiest in the state. We see more than 70,000 patients annually, yet our triage time averages less than 15 minutes, so we are also one of the most efficient in Massachusetts.
  • Our generous donors, friends, employees and physicians invested over $575,000 to fully renovate The Pediatric Center at Lawrence General Hospital – a secure, family-friendly environment with new private rooms that make it possible for parents to stay in the room with their child overnight.
