Women’s Health

LRGHealthcare and Laconia Clinic are pleased to offer combined women’s health and OB/GYN services in a single, collaborative practice.

In today’s hectic world, many women struggle to find the time to accomplish all they need to get done each day.

Juggling a busy schedule, one of the things that many women tend to neglect is themselves. Women in our community have told us time and again that they know that annual physicals, mammograms, bone density testing, and other health services are important, but that they just don’t have time to take care of themselves.

LRGHealthcare and Laconia Clinic are pleased to offer combined women’s health and OB/GYN services in a single, collaborative practice. With locations in Laconia and Franklin, Caring for Women provides every woman in our community with convenient options, better appointment availability, and a team of medical professionals to meet your healthcare needs.

For an appointment, please call 527-1855
