Established in 1980, the Greater Lawrence Family Health Center, Inc. (GLFHC) is a multi-site, mission-driven, non-profit organization employing over 600 staff whose primary focus is providing the highest quality patient care to a culturally diverse population throughout the Merrimack Valley.

Located twenty-five miles north of Boston, Lawrence, Massachusetts is a city where you can find history in all you see and do. The massive mill buildings lining the Merrimack River, the striking clock and bell towers and the breath-taking Great Stone Dam are all a tribute to Lawrence's industrial heritage. High-quality health care is available at Lawrence General Hospital, offering a full range of medical and emergency services.
Just a half-hour drive to the northwest of Boston lies the Greater Merrimack Valley. The Valley, with a beauty all its own, offers an array of seasonal activities: skiing, biking, fishing, canoeing, whitewater rafting, strawberry picking, hayrides, and concerts under the stars. There is an undeniable spirit in the Greater Merrimack Valley - the same spirit that gave birth to our country.
