Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Division of Public Health Services (DPHS) offices located at 29 Hazen Drive in Concord, NH, are scheduled to temporarily relocate between March 11-18 due to construction work onsite and will be closed for in-person public visits.

The New Hampshire Public Health Laboratories will remain open. Anyone who needs to drop off samples at the laboratories between March 11-18 should enter the building through the entrance for Central Receiving, located across from the Department of Motor Vehicles parking lot.

During the closure, all DPHS programs aside from the laboratories will not be available to the public for in-person services and the reception area in the main lobby of 29 Hazen Drive will not be staffed by DPHS. Staff who are displaced by the construction will continue their work from other locations.
