The Patient Pavilion is a 212,000-square-foot, five-story expansion of DHMC's Lebanon campus. Sixty-four single patient rooms located on levels 3 and 4 will help address the increasing needs of patients from around the region who require the high-level tertiary and quaternary care provided at DHMC, the state’s only Level 1 Trauma Center. Anticipating the future, an additional 64 patient rooms can be built on levels 2 and 5 when the need arises. We expect the Patient Pavilion to open for patients and staff in 2023.

Parking at DHMC

Due to the construction, the North Entrance at DHMC is closed. This means that patient/visitor parking at the North Entrance is no longer available. Additional spaces have been added to the Main Entrance parking lot for patients and visitors, and parking is also available in the Parking Garage. Learn more about parking at DHMC.
