With financing help from Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB), Genesis Behavioral Health is consolidating its clinical and administrative offices in Laconia into a single facility on 575 Main Street. The new facility will improve patient care, create efficiencies for sustainability and allow for the expansion of services to best meet the needs of the 24 communities it serves. The project is expected to complete in early 2018, and will improve accessibility of Genesis’ services in the Lakes Region.
With locations in Plymouth and Laconia, Genesis is a private non-profit organization that serves close to 4,000 people throughout the greater Lakes Region, providing outpatient and emergency mental health care.
“It has been my pleasure to work with Genesis for the financing of this construction project,” said Gracie Cilley, Vice President, and Commercial Loan Officer for MVSB. “I was especially impressed to see how consolidating its offices will increase efficiencies, which helps patients gain better access to services.”
“We’re very grateful to Gracie and MVSB, who have helped make this project happen,” said Margaret Pritchard, Executive Director of Genesis Behavioral Health. “In our new location, we will be able to expand services to include the integration of physical and behavioral health care, close service gaps, improve the quality of care and make access to care easier for those who need it. It’s more critical than ever for patients to have the best possible care they can get.”
Founded in 1966, Genesis provides integrated mental and physical health care for people with mental illness. It is designated by the State of New Hampshire as the community mental health center of Belknap and the southern Grafton Counties. Offering outpatient and emergency mental health care, Genesis is a private, non-profit corporation that serves children, adults, elders and their families throughout the Lakes Region.
