Nashua's Harbor Homes grows, changes
Construction began more than six months ago on the 15,000-square- foot expansion at 45 High St., which will serve as a new Harbor Care Health and Wellness Center.
The new clinic, once complete, will accommodate up to 3,500 veterans who are struggling with disabilities, illnesses and finances.
Lower-level space in the building, which was previously used for storage, is now being converted into 14 primary care examination rooms, two nursing stations, a pharmacy, cafeteria, eye care area, showers and dental laboratory for clients.
Kelleher anticipates that the new clinic will save area hospitals from unnecessary medical expenses. Some of those hospitals, he said, are financially supporting Harbor Homes with its expansion efforts, along with various other entities and individuals through a major fundraising campaign.
Shaheen described the project as impressive, adding the benefits it will provide to New Hampshire veterans will be tremendous. The clinic, she said, should serve as a model for similar organizations throughout the state and around the country.
For her efforts, she was awarded this week with a Distinguished Community Health Advocacy Award.
The first phase of the Harbor Homes renovation project is expected to be complete on May 8, which includes the clinic, dental area, new entrance and new elevator. The second phase of the work, which should be done by the end of July, includes the fitness section and medical respite center.
Shaheen praised the work at Harbor Homes, maintaining the new center will provide structured assistance in one location for individuals who may have difficulty navigating the system.
