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 opened its doors to the public in 1910. Within a few weeks of opening, every bed in the facility was occupied. In the first year, the hospital aided 122 patients. The medical facility, including equipment and supplies was realized thanks to donations from community members, (Most notably, an estate gift from Sally Proctor) and the hard work of the Ladies' Hospital Aid Society.
In 1967, the community recognized the need to grow their community hospital, and began expanding the facility. A public campaign was launched to rename the facility, and the community was asked, 'What's in a Name?' Local residents voted to rename their community hospital, Franklin Regional Hospital.
On July 1, 2002, Franklin Regional Hospital and Lakes Region General Hospital merged to become LRGHealthcare. The merger allowed FRH to continue carrying on the tradition of providing top quality care, and expanded healthcare options in Central NH.
LRGHealthcare is a comprehensive healthcare system representing LRGH, FRH and twenty two provider and network affiliate services designed to meet all of the health and wellness needs of the Lakes and Three Rivers regions.
