Nov 13, 2020 | News

Plymouth, NH – Renovations are underway at Mid-State Health Center’s Plymouth office to create specially designed space to expand the community’s access to COVID-19 testing. 

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), awarded nearly $583 million to 1,385 HRSA-funded health centers, including Mid-State, to expand COVID-19 testing.

Mid-State has contracted Nickerson Designs to transform a portion of their existing lobby into a specially-designed space for COVID-19 testing. The newly renovated space will increase community access to COVID-19 testing while decreasing the risk of exposure to the virus for its staff and patients.  The renovation will enable Mid-State providers to continue to provide high-quality health care to everyone in the community and better protect staff and patients.

“Mid-State has been dedicated to providing high-quality health care to the community, even now more than ever.  This renovation is another way that Mid-State ensures patient access to health care services that are needed most, which currently is COVID-19 testing. While we expand our testing capabilities in the coming winter months, the re-designed space will ensure our space is comfortable for our patients to seek the primary care services they need”, said Mid-State Chief Executive Officer Robert MacLeod.

Construction is will begin on November 16, 2020 and is planned to be completed in early January 2021. Mid-State Health Center at Boulder Point will remain open during normal hours during
