17 Apr The Elliot at River's Edge Officially Opens
MANCHESTER, NH: A crowd of over 1,300 people gathered at The Elliot at Rivers Edge to celebrate the Grand Opening of this 236,000 square foot healthcare facility. Doug Dean, President & CEO, led the festivities and told his physicians and staff, The future of The Elliot at Rivers Edge is now in your capable hands. He praised their skill and expertise as healthcare providers and remarked on his confidence relating to the patients and the experience they will now have in the new state-of-the art facility.
I keep telling everyone that The Elliot at Rivers Edge is a movement. It is a movement because this is the most pivotal moment the State of New Hampshire will see in healthcare for years to come. This outpatient care facility is the best model for providing preventative and proactive healthcare for the community. Services will be accessed easily, and we will reduce the number of people who need overnight care in a hospital, explained Dean.
As of Monday, April 18th, the entire facility, including Urgent Care, for non-life threatening accidents, illnesses, and injuries is open to the public. No longer do people need to use an emergency department to see a doctor. All of those physical illnesses and accidents creating some injury that you know needs treatment, can be taken care of by the same board certified ER doctors more efficiently, effectively, and for less in Urgent Care, explained Dean.
Outside the front doors, Dick Anagnost, developer, unveiled a monument in the shape of the State of New Hampshire. On it reads: Built for New Hampshire by New Hampshire. Anagnost remarked about the jobs created from the construction of Rivers Edge and the positive economic impact being experienced in Manchester from the site.
The Elliot at Rivers Edge includes Urgent Care, Elliot 1-Day Surgery Center, Diagnostic Imaging, Pulmonary Medicine and Pulmonary Rehab, Physical Rehab, Endoscopy, Gastroenterology, Rehabilitation Services, Occupational Medicine, the Elliot Breast Health Center, Outpatient Cardiac Care, Pain Management, Laboratory services, Orthopedic Surgical Specialists, General Surgical Specialists, The Wound Center & Hyperbaric Medicine, Coumadin Clinic, and support services.
Valet parking, parking garage, greeters, gift shop, ATM, reflection areas, Café and Internet Café all round out this patient friendly facility.
The Grand Opening celebration was attended by state and local dignitaries, major donors to The Elliot, community and business leaders, construction teams, as well as Elliot physicians and staff.
