The Jack Byrne Center for Palliative & Hospice Care offers several common spaces and amenities to guests and their families.
For your health, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) is tobacco-free. Promoting a safe and healthy environment for our employees, patients, visitors, volunteers, and students is essential. Smoking is not allowed inside or outside of the buildings on campus.
The Jack Byrne Center gardens are open to patients, their families, and visitors. A garden in front of the family kitchen and dining room is available for a short stroll or for sitting. For the safety of our patients and visitors, access to the gardens may be restricted after dark and during inclement weather. For the safety of our visitors, we ask that children are supervised at all times.
You may also wish to walk our beautiful medical center grounds. A walking path surrounds the main medical center. The Albert Schweitzer Walking Trail passes near the Jack Byrne Center. It will take you through the woods and can be accessed from the loop road. At the main hospital, a lovely Garden of Hope is located next to the Norris Cotton Cancer Care Pavilion Lebanon. There is also a patio and children’s play area off the Dining Room on Level 2.
