Updates About the LMH Campus
Update from Lawrence Memorial Hospital (added 1/23/19)
We received a response from the Department of Public Health (DPH) regarding the proposed closure of the satellite emergency facility at Lawrence Memorial Hospital in Medford.
As expected, DPH has asked for some additional information affirming that the needs and safety of the community will be met by the greater-area’s multiple emergency departments, local, sophisticated EMS system, as well as the extended urgent care services at Lawrence Memorial Hospital.
We will be providing the requested information back to the DPH within 15 days. The expected date of closure is March 7, 2019.
Lawrence Memorial Hospital is committed to providing the right level of care in the community through our proposed expanded urgent care hours, and in working closely with our EMS partners, we are developing appropriate transition planning, that will include community-wide communication, and collaboration with the seven emergency departments that will continue to provide the community with access to emergency services.
