NH hospital, business incubator get grants

Posted: Updated:

COLEBROOK, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire's northernmost hospital and a job incubator center in Plymouth are benefiting from a federal-state partnership designed to help distressed communities in northern New Hampshire and other states.

The Northern Border Regional Commission is awarding $200,000 to the Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook, which plans to match the grant to replace its aging cardiac monitoring system.

The Grafton County Economic Development Council will use its $145,000 grant to complete construction of the Enterprise Center at Plymouth it is developing with Plymouth State University. The money will help fund an additional 10,000 square feet of incubator space to create jobs in the county.

Gov. Maggie Hassan announced the grants Tuesday.
