Bank of New Hampshire is proud to announce that they have made a $500,000 contribution towards LRGHealthcare’s “Strengthening the Community’s Well-Being” capital campaign. “As a true icon with a parallel mission to provide quality service, LRGHealthcare is a staple in this community. We are fortunate to partner with such a dedicated organization.” Stated Mark Primeau, President & CEO of Bank of New Hampshire. “Bank of New Hampshire is committed to our roots here in the Lakes Region and is proud to be New Hampshire’s Local Bank.”
The major focus of the Strengthening the Community’s Well-Being Capital Campaign is to raise the necessary funds, through philanthropic giving, to convert existing LRGH and FRH inpatient rooms to single patient rooms. Renovations will include private bathrooms and showers, family sleep sofas and state-of-the-art patient lift systems, providing the safest and easiest way to move a patient. Private rooms allow patients the opportunity to sleep better, heal faster and have private discussions with their family and health care providers. In addition to private patient rooms, renovations include a new endoscopy suite at LRGH, updating medical imaging equipment at Franklin Regional Hospital and Lakes Region General Hospital and expansion of the Emergency Department to accommodate the growing needs of the community.
“Bank of New Hampshire has always stepped up to the plate in supporting important initiatives at LRGHealthcare. The bank was the first business to donate to our capital campaign - constituting a significant jump-start while motivating others in our community to support. Bank of New Hampshire is a business role model and we are honored to receive this extremely generous gift,” stated LRGHealthcare President & CEO Tom Clairmont.
