About the Lawrence Hospital

In 1909 William Van Duzer Lawrence recognized the need for an outstanding community hospital after his son fell ill with appendicitis and had to be transported by baggage car to New York City. Following his son’s complete recovery, he purchased the land and donated the funds to build Lawrence Hospital Center.

Lawrence Hospital has grown into a 291 bed hospital with over 450 physicians and over 1,000 employees. We treat an average of 100 patients a day in our new, state-of-the-art Emergency Department. The Emergency Department is our door to the community but behind it is a vast array of services including lab, radiology, surgery, critical care, maternity, oncology and rehabilitation.

Lawrence Hospital Center is accredited by The Joint Commission. The hospital is licensed by the New York State Department of Health.
