Lakes Region General Hospital has been named a Community Value Index Five-Star Hospital by Ohio-based healthcare financial consulting firm, Cleverley & Associates, and is one of just four New Hampshire hospitals honored with the designation in 2011. A grant from the National Breast Cancer Foundation has enabled LRG’s Breast Health Program to provide free mammograms to women without health insurance, or who have a high deductible and would otherwise not be able to afford this important diagnostic service. The program offers support to women who are found to have breast cancer, promotes education, informed decision-making, and comprehensive care to patients throughout each stage of their treatment and recovery.
"Our participation with the National Breast Cancer Foundation Grant has given us the opportunity to expand screening and education for women in the Lakes Region and Franklin communities. These efforts align with our mission to "provide accessible, quality, compassionate care to strengthen the well being of the community."
