Huggins provides more convenient hours for Primary Care and Ultrasound

Huggins Hospital is pleased to announce extended hours both for ultrasound appointments in Medical Imaging Services and appointments in several of the hospital’s physician practices. As part of the hospital’s continuing effort to be here when you need us, these increased hours will offer more flexibility around work and school schedules for patients to make more convenient appointments.

Hours for ultrasound appointments in Medical Imaging Services are now 7 AM to 5:30 PM Monday through Thursday, 7 AM to 4:30 PM on Friday, and additional weekend hours from 7 AM to noon on Saturday and Sunday. Ultrasound imaging, also known as sonography, is a safe diagnostic tool that neither utilizes nor emits radiation. Using high-frequency sound waves, ultrasound imaging can view inside internal organs including the abdomen, heart, and eye; detect tumors and blood clots; monitor blood flow and organ function in real time; and guide needle placement for biopsies. Huggins is eager to make it as convenient as possible for patients to get an appointment for this potentially lifesaving imaging method.

Huggins’ physician practices in Alton, Ossipee, and Wolfeboro, including Wolfeboro Pediatrics, are also now offering extended hours during the week:

  • Alton Family Medicine will be open Monday, Thursday and Friday from 8 AM to 8 PM; Tuesday and Wednesday hours remain 8 AM to 5 PM. The office can be reached at 603.875.6151.

  • Wolfeboro Family Medicine’s Monday, Tuesday and Thursday hours are now 7:30 AM to 8 PM with Wednesday and Friday hours remaining 7:30 AM to 5 PM. The office number is 603.569.7574.
