LRH Makes Adjustments to Hospital Operations Due to COVID-19

March 27, 2020

Littleton, NH - Since 1907, Littleton Regional Healthcare has been meeting the healthcare needs of our region. In our modern facility, LRH is prepared to serve our region during the COVID-19 public health emergency. Four weeks ago, LRH activated its Emergency Incident Command System in response to the COVID -19 public health emergency. The Incident Command System is a management system that assists hospitals and healthcare organizations in improving emergency management planning, response, and recovery capabilities for unplanned and planned events. By utilizing the principles in Incident Command System, LRH is prepared for the projected dramatic increase in patient volume due to the pandemic, commonly referred to as a "surge".

Robert Nutter, President & CEO states, "LRH is facing unprecedented challenges. We continue to adapt to this evolving situation, with the primary priority being the health and well-being of our workforce, patients, and community members. In order to meet our region's expected needs for critical care services presented by COVID-19, LRH is working diligently to prepare hospital operations to accommodate the expected surge."

Mr. Nutter outlined LRH's readiness and preparations to meet the needs of the community during this extraordinary crisis.

LRH has adjusted staffing levels to meet current volumes and reassigned other staff to focus on the projected increase of COVID-19 patients. LRH will continue to communicate to its workforce and expect to return to normal staffing levels as soon as practical when the pandemic subsides.

For the past month, LRH has been working with our healthcare partners as well as local, state and federal authorities to minimize the projected disruptions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. LRH will continue to monitor federal and state recommendations, implement guidance, and communicate with our medical staff, workforce, and community.
