Welcome to Lawrence Memorial Hospital

Lawrence Memorial Hospital (LMH), in collaboration with its medical staff, is dedicated to providing personal and high-quality health and wellness services for the people of Lawrence and the extended community. Each day, LMH seeks to be the BEST community hospital by exceeding the expectations of those we serve.

Founded in 1921, LMH is a 173-bed hospital located in Lawrence, Kansas. Through the years, hospital additions have been built and health care services have expanded—a trend that continues today. In March 2009, LMH completed a three-year $45 million expansion which included new facilities for Emergency and Surgery and additional space for Maternity, Intensive Care and Critical Care. A new 18-bed wing was added which allowed the hospital to convert semi-private patient rooms to all private.

LMH continues to be a community-owned, not-for-profit hospital that serves the health care needs of the community regardless of an individual's ability to pay. LMH receives no tax support from the city of Lawrence or Douglas County. Dedicated to improving the health of the community, LMH invests all excess revenues in services, equipment and facilities which further that mission.

Lawrence Memorial Hospital provides care that is sensitive to cultural, racial, religious and other differences and does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, age, ethnicity, culture, language, socio-economic status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, physical or mental disability, or source of payment, nor in relation to employment practices.

The hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission. In addition, hospital services are surveyed by a variety of other accrediting agencies.
