Core Physicians Exeter Hospital, currently located at 96 Calef Highway (Route 125) in Epping, will be moving to a new location. A new facility is being built that will offer patients a variety of new services in an eco-friendly space.

To be named the Epping Regional Health Center, the new building, is located at 212 Calef Highway. Ryan Lawrence, senior Marketing & Public Relations Analyst for Exeter Health Resources, explained that the move will help meet the growing demand for health care in the Seacoast region.

“The new facility will further expand patient choice and increase access to quality, comprehensive health care services in Epping and surrounding communities. The new facility will make it easier for Epping area residents to have their health care needs met close to home in one convenient location,” Lawrence said.

The move will better serve patients by offering a variety of services the old location did not offer, he said. Health care services will include: family medicine, pediatric care, adult rehabilitation - physical and occupational therapy, pediatric rehabilitation – (physical, occupational and speech therapy), imaging (X-ray), lab services, and mobile digital mammography.

The new, 25,650-square-foot building offers a patient-centered and eco-friendly design. It will “help improve patient experiences and increase efficiency. The center will be designed as a modern, eco-friendly space,” Lawrence said.

Special features include: rain water collection, porous pavement, rain gardens for storm water treatment, a high efficiency mechanical system and high efficiency lighting and controls.

Staffing the facility will be four primary care physicians and a nurse practitioner, as well as four pediatricians and two nurse practitioners for pediatrics. Staff members who are already in place within the organization will be relocating to the new center, giving patients a familiar face in a new location.

With construction on track, the facility plans to open its doors to patients in March 2013.
