The Valley News reports on growth at the ever-expanding DHMC.
(There is also a great low-angle aerial view of DHMC on Dartmouth’s Flickr stream.)
The Heater Road building (a prior post) is nearing completion. About 200 people will move there from the main DHMC complex.
Then DHMC can perform a $16.6m renovation on one of its existing buildings to add critical-care beds. (And “DHMC’s mail services are being moved off the Lebanon campus and into a former U.S. Postal Service building in Centerra Park.”)
Finally, during their March meeting the trustees voted to approve a capital budget that includes “design funding for the Williamson Translational Research Building on the medical school’s Lebanon, N.H. campus” (The Dartmouth). The press release states:
The building will house programs concerned with adapting laboratory discoveries to use in patient care, with an emphasis on multi-disciplinary problem solving in areas including neuroscience, cardiovascular science, and immunology/infectious diseases, among others.
[Update 08.12.2012: Construction on Williamson will begin during June of 2013 and finish by September of 2015. The existing $20 million pledge will cover part of the estimated cost of $115 million. Bond info pdf, A-10.]
