Frisbie Memorial Hospital Begins Construction on Inpatient Acute Rehabilitation Unit

To better serve our community, Frisbie Memorial Hospital has begun construction of a new inpatient acute care rehabilitation unit.

This unit will provide high-quality physical, occupational, and speech therapy for some of the most severely ill and injured patients in New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts, such as those who have suffered a stroke, heart attack, or other significant trauma. The new unit is expected to open on March 1, 2023.

“There is a significant shortage of acute rehab beds throughout New Hampshire,” said Tim Jones, chief executive officer of Frisbie Memorial Hospital. “This unit will help us to better meet the needs of the Greater Rochester community and beyond, and it is just one in a series of changes we’re making at Frisbie to better serve our patients and their families. This new unit will allow our patients to stay closer to home, in their community, and near their support network throughout their recovery.”

The inpatient rehab will have 19 beds and state-of-the-art gym equipment, all located in a newly updated unit.

The inpatient acute care rehab at Frisbie Memorial Hospital will care for its own patients transitioning to rehab, and will be a referral destination for hospitals throughout the Seacoast and the states of New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts.
