Laconia Clinic launches new consumer website

LACONIA — Laconia Clinic, a clinical department of Lakes Region General Hospital announces the launch of a new consumer website for current and prospective patients.

Visitors will find quick and easy access to specialty and service information, health resources, including community education programs, maps and directions for all of the clinic locations, and a physician directory that delivers search options by provider name or specialty.

Launched by five local physicians in 1937, the Laconia Clinic has grown from a regional physician practice to a multi-specialty comprehensive clinic providing; internal and family medicine, pediatrics, orthopedics, general surgery, neurology, podiatry, urology, dermatology, diabetes, rheumatology and women's health services.

Today, the health network stretches to Tilton, Franklin and Gilford, with the flagship facility in Laconia offering on-site laboratory, radiology, pharmacy and ambulatory surgery center. The adjacent Caring for Women center offers obstetrics and gynecology, digital mammography, ultrasound and bone density testing—and within the same block is the Laconia Physical Therapy department.

"Committed to excellence, the founders of the Laconia Clinic were truly pioneers of patient-centered care," states chief executive officer Andy Patterson. "They came together to ensure the healthcare needs of the community came first by focusing on long-term health, not just short-term treatment. We are very proud to build upon their legacy of caring."
