independence, security, companionship and quality of life to the local elderly population. Uncommon
to many nursing home facilities, Lawrence Hall is connected to Lawrence Memorial Hospital and the

associated with trips to the doctor. Lawrence Hall has a full-time activities department devoted to helping
residents maintain active and fulfilling lifestyles. Residents and their families also enjoy the comforts of a
newly-remodeled family room as well as nightly church services in the chapel.

Family Medical Center— Staffed with an advanced practice nurse, pediatric/internal medicine physician,
and an internal medicine physician, Family Medical is a rural health clinic that helps Lawrence Health
Services provide medical care to as many families as possible.

Specialty Clinic—The leaders of Lawrence Health understand that many of our patients must go on
to larger facilities to receive specialized services, so they established the Specialty Clinic in order to
save residents the time and money associated with driving to a larger facility. On certain days of the
week, physicians are available in the areas of cardiology, gastroenterology,/gynecology, orthopedics and
podiatry. The Specialty Clinic is located adjacent to Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

Home Medical Equipment—Home Medical is a medical supply store that specializes in providing our
patients and members of the community with the equipment and supplies necessary for optimal health.

Hospital..
