Portsmouth Hospital Comes to Seabrook

The Board of Selectmen welcomed Portsmouth Regional Hospital to Seabrook this week to announce the placement of a full service Emergency Room in Seabrook, in partnership with Waterstone Development. This is a terrific development for Seabrook, bringing vital medical services into the community, 45 new jobs to start, and substantial tax revenue. My thanks to Dean Carucci of Portsmouth Regional Hospital and the folks at Waterstone Development. From the joint press release from the Town of Seabrook and Portsmouth Regional Hospital.

The Town of Seabrook announced a plan to build a new Freestanding ER through an agreement with Portsmouth Regional Hospital. The town anticipates a summer 2017 opening.

Portsmouth Regional Hospital’s Seabrook ER, a freestanding ER for the communities of Seabrook, Hampton and Hampton Falls in New Hampshire and Amesbury and Salisbury in Massachusetts will be located at 603 Lafayette Road, at the Intersection of Route 1 and Route 107, in Seabrook, New Hampshire.

“The Town of Seabrook and Portsmouth Regional Hospital have mutually committed to address the critical need for a convenient local healthcare access point close to major arteries such as Interstate 95 and Route 1,” stated William Manzi III, Seabrook town manager.

“The freestanding Seabrook ER will also provide needed employment for the area and will continue Portsmouth Regional Hospital’s tradition of quality patient-centered care for the communities it serves,” stated Dean Carucci, Portsmouth Regional Hospital CEO. “We hope to create an estimated 45 new healthcare jobs with this project,” Carucci continued.
