Media Center

Thank you for visiting LRGHealthcare. Our goal is to support your need for healthcare information and patient conditions. By following a few ground rules, together, we can meet your informational needs.

Should you require a patient condition, please follow these guidelines.

  1. Media representatives will contact the Emergency Department or patient floor directly for patient conditions.
  2. Nursing staff will try and accommodate the request using one of the General Patient Conditions listed below. The media representative must give nursing staff a name and then the only information, which will be given out, is a one word General Patient Condition.
  3. If nursing staff is unable to assist the media representative, they may refer the media representative to the LRGHealthcare Director of Public Relations and Marketing at (603) 737-1041 or pager:517-2894.
