Weeks Medical Center
Weeks Medical Center, also known as Weeks Memorial Hospital, opened in 1947 and was given by Sinclair Weeks as a memorial to his wife Beatrice D. Weeks. Located in Lancaster, New Hampshire, Weeks Medical Center is a 25-bed Critical Access Hospital offering Medical, Surgical and Intensive Care Services for Northern New Hampshire and Northern Vermont. The 90,000 square foot facility consists of approximately 30,000 square feet of new addition completed in 2000 by Yeaton Associates, Inc. as well as 60,000 square feet of original facility.
Weeks Medical Center engaged Yeaton Associates, Inc. to provide a mechanical, electrical and plumbing facility master plan that included existing HVAC systems definition, infrastructure capability analysis, and recommendations for improved electrical service and energy-saving upgrades.
As part of the master planning effort and infrastructure capacity analysis, Yeaton Associates, Inc. conducted a feasibility study that ultimately supported a new power plant as well as the installation of a new biomass central boiler plant to complement the hospital's existing oil fired plant. Based on Yeaton's projections, the owner elected to move forward with a power plant that included a new utility power entrance, backed up by two (2) 500 KW generators to address normal, life-safety, and critical equipment needs as well as the construction of a new woodchip biomass plant. The woodchip biomass plant went on-line in March 2011 and has produced significant energy cost savings for Weeks Medical Center.
