DHMC Patient Pavilion Project
Construction on a 212,000-square-foot, five-story new Patient Pavilion at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) in Lebanon, New Hampshire, began in July 2020. We expect it to be ready for patients and staff in early 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. (See patient parking map below).
If you are a patient or caregiver who needs to pick up a family member being discharged from an inpatient unit, please refer to our Getting Discharged instructions.
Please allow extra time to get to and from the hospital and for parking.
Thank you for your patience.
