Dartmouth-Hitchcock Opens 30,000 SF Skilled Nursing Facility in New Hampshire
LEBANON, N.H. — Dartmouth-Hitchcock and E4H Environments for Health Architecture have opened the new Jack Byrne Center for Palliative & Hospice Care, a 30,000-square-foot skilled nursing and hospice facility. The property is located within the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center campus in Lebanon, located near the Vermont border. The new facility features 12 single-occupancy patient rooms that offer a home-like setting. The Jack Byrne Center will also serve as an educational and training center for end-of-life caregivers throughout New England. The resource program was developed and will be administered by Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s Palliative Care Program in collaboration with hospice and community partners. Construction of the facility by PC Construction began in June 2016. Led by a $10 million commitment from the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation in 2014, philanthropic support covered 75 percent of the center’s construction cost.
