About the Organization
Lewis County General Hospital is a 25-bed Critical Access Hospital and 160-bed Nursing Home facility that also offers Hospice and Home Health Care services for residents. Not only do we provide critical health care and 24/7 emergency services, our facility continues to contribute vital resources to our communities through jobs, tax revenue, and capital improvements. With over 650 employees, LCGH is one of the largest employers in the County.
The facility also operates four off-site health centers. The centers are staffed by physicians and physician assistants employed by the hospital. These sites, located in Beaver Falls, Copenhagen, Harrisville and Lyons Falls, help to bring the skills of the staff and the modern technology of the facility directly to the local communities. The Women's Health Center, Lewis County Surgical Associates, Lewis County Dermatology, Lewis County Orthopedics, Internal Medicine, Family Practice, and LCGH Extended Hours Clinic are located on the main campus in Lowville.
The hospital remodeled and enlarged the Diagnostic Imaging Department. The cornerstone of the new center is the first and only 3D Digital Mammography Unit and 3D Automated Dense Breast Ultrasound in the North Country. We are proud of offering some of the latest technology available in the ongoing fight against breast cancer. The Emergency Department currently sees over 11,000 patients a year.
With over 100 professional health care providers in various specialties, Lewis County General is quickly growing to better serve the community. The future is bright for the facility because of our highly skilled physicians, the dedicated staff, the support of the community, and an administration that looks toward the future with a positive plan of growth and modernization.
