Ground was broken on March 1 for the new Circle Health facility being built in Dracut.
(Editor's note: The following information was published by Lowell General Hospital/Circle Health.)
Circle Health is excited to announce plans for its next outpatient center – Circle Health Dracut.
The project calls for a new 27,000-square foot, three-story medical building at the corner of Broadway (Route 113) and Loon Hill Road. It will include a Circle Health Urgent Care and Lowell General Hospital patient service center, primary care and OB/GYN physician practices, and diabetes and endocrinology specialty services.
“We are excited for the opportunity to bring this added level of Complete connected care to the Dracut community,” said Lowell General Hospital President Jody White. “Lowell General Hospital has always provided healthcare to the people of Dracut, and we’re looking forward to now having a physical presence in this convenient location.”
As part of its effort to develop the Broadway/Loon Hill Road area, Dracut has received a $2.5 million state grant to make improvements to the adjacent intersection and sidewalks.
On March 1, Circle Health leaders joined Dracut Town Manager Jim Duggan and other state and local officials at the project site to ceremonially break ground on the project. Honored guests included state Rep. Colleen Garry, state Deputy Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Carolyn Kirk and the entire Dracut Board of Selectmen – Chairwoman Alison Hughes, Vice Chairman Joe DiRocco, Tony Archinski, Tami Dristilliaris and Jesse Forcer.
Circle Health Dracut is expected to open in late 2018.
Circle Health has opened similar outpatient centers in Westford (198 Littleton Road) in 2014 and Billerica (Treble Cove Plaza, 199 Boston Road) earlier this year.
