For Patients

Patient Advocacy

Lowell General Hospital is committed to your care, safety and patient rights. You may have questions or concerns about the care you or your loved one is receiving. We encourage you to share these concerns with your physician, nurse, or the manager/director of the hospital unit so they can work to quickly resolve the issue. If these concerns cannot be addressed to your satisfaction, our Patient Advocacy Department can help facilitate a resolution.

A Patient Advocate is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm at the Lowell General main campus at 978-937-6458 or the Lowell General Saints campus at 978-934-8203. Administrative Nurse Supervisors are available to address your concerns Monday through Friday from 4:30 pm to 8:00 am and on weekends by dialing “0” and asking for a Nurse Administrator.

If you have a serious concern about patient safety, quality of care or the violation of patient rights that is not resolved to your satisfaction through our Patient Advocacy Department, you are invited to contact the following organizations. You will not be penalized for filing a complaint.
