Chelmsford Town Manager, Paul Cohen, expressed appreciation for the investment of the hospital in the town – expanding business and improving healthcare for residents. “The town has worked collaboratively both with the hospital and with its own representative groups, beginning with the joint meetings of the Planning Board, Board of Selectman and the Conservation Committee in December. The success of the project thus far demonstrates that the Town of Chelmsford can keep up with the pace of business today.”

The campus is being designed with many landscape and aesthetic considerations using the services of Kim Ahern with engineering services of Watermark Environmental. Funding has been provided by Enterprise Bank and Lowell Five.
