About Lawrence Memorial Hospital
Lawrence Memorial Hospital is a 174-bed, community-owned, non-profit facility that serves the communities of the city of Lawrence and Douglas County, Kansas. It was founded in 1921 in a converted home and thrived there until 1929, when a 50-bed facility was built. With several expansions throughout the years, that facility remained a stronghold in Lawrence until 1977, when it was replaced with a completely new building. The new grounds have continued to grow with the addition of a rehabilitation center, a heart center, and an oncology center, as well as expansions to many of the original departments.
