Lowell General Hospital will assist our patients in obtaining financial assistance from public programs and other sources. Lowell General Hospital has financial aid policies that are consistent with the mission and values of the organization and take into account each individual’s ability for payment, including offering payment plans. Our financial assistance program does comply with state and federal laws and regulation. Financial Counselors are available at 978-937-6700.
