Renovations at Dartmouth General Hospital are impacting the locations of some services. Check back here for updates on the impact of the renovations.

Roadwork and route changes
  • Starting Aug. 6, the entrance to Dartmouth General’s parking lot will temporarily be relocated to the former exit only location on Acadia St., making this route two-ways.  All changes are marked by signage. We encourage patients and visitors to travel new routes slowly and yield to on-site traffic control.

Access changes

  • All internal access to internal medicine will return to normal. Patients can now reach the department from within the hospital.

Parking changes

  • Parking improvements at the Dartmouth General Hospital will increase in intensity beginning September 30 and will continue into early December. This work will temporarily decrease parking in the hospital’s main lot. 
  • An equal number of parking spaces to the main lot will be available on 10 Acadia Street, accessed through following the directional signs on the main ring road entrance. All changes are marked clearly with signage. 
  • During this time, we ask visitors to yield parking spaces in the main lot for the elderly, ill and those with restricted mobility. 
  • Patients and families are reminded to plan for extra time to park and arrive for appointments when visiting the hospital. Patients with a family member or friend can be dropped-off and picked up at the covered main entrance.
  • All parking proceeds support the DGH Foundation’s work to help fund priority medical equipment to enhance patient care. 
  • We apologize for the inconvenience.
