Lawrence Healthcare announced a rebranding campaign that reflects recent advances at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Lawrence Hall Health and Rehabilitation (LHHR), Family Medical Center and Specialty Clinic.

Since Lawrence Healthcare began serving Lawrence County residents more than six decades ago, the system has expanded from a small community hospital to a full-fledged healthcare system.

Lawrence Healthcare President Josh Conlee says patients can expect a new look when they arrive, but they should expect the same high level of care they know and trust.

“A few aesthetics have changed, but our slogan – ‘People you know caring for the people you love’ – remains the same,” Conlee said. “We believe our changes align with what we offer Lawrence County in 2021.”

The healthcare system’s flagship facility, Lawrence Memorial Hospital, serves as a 25-private-bed, critical access hospital. The hospital offers a full-service laboratory, radiology department, 24-hour emergency department, in-house pharmacy, swingbed program and chaplaincy services.

Some of the hospital’s more recently added services include sleep studies, open-bore MRI, 80-slice CT, digital mammography, bone density and IDHI (Institute for Digital Health & Innovation) Stroke Program – a live, telemedicine-based neurology consultation in partnership with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in Little Rock.

In addition to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, its adjacent Lawrence Hall Health and Rehabilitation facility holds a 150-bed license for long-term care services. LHHR offers 24-hour skilled nursing care, a memory unit and both long-term and short-term rehabilitation.

In addition, it provides residents with private rooms, activities each day of the week, free Wi-Fi, a beauty salon, a therapy gym and therapy, a chapel, financial counseling, transportation to doctors’ appointments and dedicated memory care.

Lastly, through Lawrence Healthcare’s Family Medicine Center and Specialty Clinic, patients receive the primary and specialty care they need, close to home and without a hospital visit.

Conlee says he expects Lawrence Healthcare’s new look will simply serve as the start of great things for the region.

“We’ve been right here in Walnut Ridge for more than 60 years,” Conlee said, “and we anticipate growing in how we reach Lawrence County as a whole. We’re excited about the next 60 years.”
