About Lowell General Hospital

When Lowell General Hospital was founded in 1891, we opened our doors to the community as a welcoming place where patients always come first. That mission is at the heart of how we provide healthcare to all who come through our doors today.

Who we are

Lowell General Hospital was established more than 130 years ago, and we’re driven by the guiding principle to be one of the best community hospitals in America. We work every day to fulfill that vision, and it all starts with understanding you and your healthcare needs on a personal level. Our 2 inpatient hospital campuses, Cancer Center, Heart and Vascular Center, 4 urgent care locations, affiliated physicians and outpatient facilities provide state-of-the-art technology and a full range of specialty services to the Greater Lowell community.

Here, we balance comfort with clinical excellence and have the certifications to prove it. The American Nurses Credentialing Center has named Lowell General as a Magnet® Recognized Hospital for our positive work environment, innovation, nursing excellence and positive patient outcomes. This recognition embodies our dedication to personalized health and wellness for you, your family, neighbors and more.  

Our care for the community also extends beyond our doors. We’re working to close the gap in accessible healthcare for people of all backgrounds. Partnerships with local high schools, community task forces, nonprofits and local organizations help us identify current and future health needs within our community so we can live healthier lives together.
