New Manchester Medical Center to host open house

MANCHESTER — Though the new Manchester Medical Center will not be opening its doors until this fall, its doctors and staff are beginning to build a relationship with the local community.

At 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 20, the Medical Center will host an open house and reveal the architectural plans for the new facility at 34 Bonnet St. The owners of the new Medical Center, Doctors Thomas Sterling and Janel Kittredge, will be be available alongside doctors and staff to answer questions about the project from the community.

Sterling and Kittredge, both board certified emergency medicine physicians with diverse medical training and specialties including as Life Flight physicians and in trauma care, initiated the project to address the need for a local, high acuity urgent care facility in Manchester. Compared to other medical facilities already in the area, a high acuity urgent care center is able to identify and treat injuries and illnesses on-site, or stabilize and transport patients to a hospital when required.

"This medical center is something we believe is extremely important in order to better serve the needs of all people in our community," said Kittredge. "We couldn't be more pleased with how the plans for the facility are coming together and are excited to share them."

The Manchester Medical Center's urgent care will provide a full spectrum of services for both residents and visitors, including sore throats, fevers, cuts and burns, respiratory issues, emergency orthopedics, OB/GYN, and many more. The facility will be available as an emergency department alternative for non-life threatening medical care 12 hours a day, seven days a week. Walk-ins and same day appointments will be available with minimal wait times, and patients will not need to be established with the practice or have medical insurance in order to be seen and treated.

Renovations of the space on Bonnet Street are underway, with a timeline for completion in late fall. The center will have eight treatment rooms, an X-ray machine, ultrasound imaging, on-site lab, and more. The two also plan to hire a number of staff for the medical center, including X-ray technicians, nurses, paramedics, and administrative support.

"This is a project for and about this community," said Sterling. "We invite everyone to our open house to come and learn about the services that will be available to them in the near future."

The Manchester Medical Center's open house will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 20. For more information, contact
