Ground Broken for Patient Pavilion

Ground breaking at DHMC for Patient Pavilion.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Wednesday, July 22, for the new Patient Pavilion at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) in Lebanon. “We know that the demand continues to grow in our communities we serve, and thus the demonstrated need for the pavilion,” said Dartmouth-Hitchcock and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health CEO and President Joanne M. Conroy, MD. “It really is a testament to our community that, in the midst of all the uncertainty facing the country, we are still going ahead with this project.” Added D-H and D-HH Trustee Chair Edward Stansfield: “When our community needs us, we must be ready to take action, and this pavilion is the evidence of that.”
