N.H. women's prison will focus on healthcare

August 22, 2017

The new New Hampshire Women’s Prison in Concord will have an improved healthcare facility, with a focus on mental health, rehabilitation and an atmosphere intended to promote healing and normalization for inmates, according to an article on the Correctional News website.

The healthcare facility will take up approximately 11 percent of the total footprint of the prison, which is significantly above average, the article said.

The facility will have a complete infirmary, a mental health crisis stabilization unit and all of the outpatient facilities that are present in a prison.

It will have four exam rooms designed for different needs: general needs, trauma and minor procedures, physical therapy and basic triage. It also has a dental suite with two dental chairs, a full dental lab and X-ray capabilities.
