Welcome to the Franklin Regional Hospital
Welcome to Franklin Regional Hospital (FRH). Our mission is to provide quality, compassionate care and to strengthen the well-being of our community.
FRH is a 25-bed critical access community hospital, and we offer a wide range of medical, surgical, specialty, diagnostic, and therapeutic services, wellness education, support groups, and other community outreach services.
Our Emergency Services department is staffed with specially trained physicians, nurses and staff, providing the highest quality care, delivered with the care and compassion. 24-hour availability of state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, and both ground and air transfer capability to tertiary care facilities.
We proudly serve the Three Rivers Region communities of Franklin, Tilton, Northfield, Sanbornton, Alexandria, Andover, Bristol, Bridgewater, Boscawen, Danbury, Hebron, Hill and Salisbury.
The Aiken House/Franklin Hospital opened its doors to the public in 1910. Within a few weeks of that opening, every bed in the facility was occupied. In the first year, the hospital aided 122 patients, providing a total of 1,981 days of patient care.
The hospital was built more than a century ago because residents in the Three Rivers community realized a need, and stepped up. Donations (most notably, an estate gift by Sally Proctor), and the hard work of the Ladies' Hospital Aid Society made the opening of the hospital possible. The equipment and supplies needed to care for patients came from the generosity of friends and neighbors.
In 1967, the community recognized the need to grow the community hospital, and began expanding the facility. A campaign was launched to rename the hospital by asking the community a simple question, 'What's in a Name?' Local residents voted, and renamed their hospital, Franklin Regional Hospital.
On July 1, 2002, Franklin Regional Hospital and Lakes Region General Hospital merged to become LRGHealthcare. Carrying on the tradition of providing top quality care for residents of the Three Rivers Region, the merger strengthened both hospitals, while expanding healthcare options in the Lakes and Three Rivers Regions.
