D-H to break ground on clinic in Manchester

Thursday, May 09, 2019

LEBANON — Dartmouth-Hitchcock is scheduled to break ground on a $59 million expansion of its Manchester clinic on Tuesday.

The 90,000-square-foot project at its Wellington Road facility is slated to include six operating rooms, including some specifically for pediatric patients; an expanded laboratory, dedicated infusion space, imaging services and improvements to the onsite cafe, according to a Wednesday news release from D-H.

“By improving convenient access to high-quality ambulatory services, Dartmouth-Hitchcock will be able to provide the most effective and efficient health care for patients, with a goal of patient recovery at home instead of at the hospital,” D-H said in the release.

Specialties expected to be available in the renovated facility include orthopaedics and sports medicine; general surgery, ear, nose and throat; podiatry, endoscopy, expanded primary and urgent care; spine services, dermatology and cardiovascular care, according to the project website: dartmouth-hitchcock.org/hitchcock-way.html.

D-H aims to open the new space in the fall of 2020.

In addition to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, D-H also includes affiliated hospitals in Lebanon, Keene, N.H. and New London, and Windsor, and Visiting Nurse and Hospice for Vermont and New Hampshire, as well as 24 D-H clinics that provide ambulatory services across New Hampshire and Vermont.
