UPDATE MARCH 23, 2020
LRH Visitor Policy Change
In an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 and exercise the utmost caution for the health of our workforce and community, effective Friday, March 20, 2020 Littleton Regional Healthcare is no longer allowing visitors with a few exceptions. Exceptions are below:
- Pediatrics - one parent or guardian only
- Maternity - one support person only
- Oncology - determined on a case by case basis
- Patients at end of life -- determined on a case by case basis
- Patient here for OB ultrasound - one support person only
- Patients with cognitive or mobility impairment may be accompanied by one support person who passes screening
We will screen all visitors for respiratory symptoms at the Main Hospital and Medical Office Building entrances. Prior registration and approval is required for visitors to the Sauter Birthing Suite, pediatric patients, and end of life patients. Any visitor with mild respiratory symptoms (cough, fever, or shortness of breath) will be denied entry to our facility. If symptoms warrant, visitor will be directed to the Emergency Department Respiratory Triage Area.
Anyone bringing a patient for outpatient services (emergency care, x-ray, laboratory, procedures, and same day surgery) will need to drop off and pick up the patient, and should plan to wait in the parking lot in their personal vehicle in the designated waiting area. We will take a cell phone number and call you when the patient is ready for pick up.
We understand this decision will be difficult for patients, their families, and friends. Please know that we make these decisions to preserve the ongoing wellness of our patients and staff.

A Letter To The Community
Dear LRH Community:
As you are aware, the COVID-19 outbreak has caused our entire country to work on efforts to limit this escalating public health emergency. Here in New Hampshire, in the last few days, we have seen recommendations for social distancing, closing of schools and restaurants, and cancellation of events in an effort to protect public health and slow the spread of the virus to avoid over burdening the healthcare system.
