Medication Center relocating to Laconia Clinic (149)

LACONIA — Effective Monday, June 15, the Medication Connection (Med-Connect) office at the Healthlink Building in downtown Laconia will be relocated to the Pharmacy Center at the Laconia Clinic. The Pharmacy Center is located on the first floor of the Laconia Clinic at 724 North Main Street and is a ¼ mile from the Healthlink building.

The Med-Connect program assists patients who have no other sources for help with prescriptions—those who have too much income to qualify for state aid for prescriptions, but not enough to purchase a supplemental prescription plan. LRGHealthcare works with patients' Primary Care Providers to help access patient medication programs offered through pharmaceutical companies. Walk-in hours will no longer be available, but phone appointments can be scheduled as needed.

The phone number for Med-Connect will remain 527-2860. For current Med-Connect program patients, feel free to call with any questions or concerns regarding the relocation to the Laconia Clinic.
