More than 300 patients are denied access to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center each month because there are no beds available. These are children and adults with a variety of care needs—heart attacks, brain aneurysms, premature births, the list goes on. Instead of receiving superb, sophisticated care close to home, near families and loved ones, these patients must be sent to medical centers hours away, at great cost and inconvenience—and at added risk from the delay in receiving care.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock is committed to providing the best care available, as close to home as possible. That is our promise—to our patients, our people, and our communities. To fulfill that promise and meet the urgent needs of our region, we’ve designed a new Patient Pavilion. Scheduled to open by 2023, this Pavilion will provide spacious, state-of-the-art private rooms to meet current needs, as well as unfinished space to allow for future expansion.
Philanthropy is key to the success of this project. Gifts will not merely fund bricks and mortar, steel and glass. They will support better outcomes. Greater patient privacy and dignity. Comfortable space for families. Less turning people away. More peace of mind.
