Harwich Port, MA – Delphi Construction recently announced that work has begun on the comprehensive renovation and conversion of a building formerly housing a local grocery market to become a community health center in Harwich Port. Delphi will manage all aspects of construction on the $6+ million project.

Design of the new facility was provided by DBVW Architects, Inc., with civil engineering from Coastal Engineering Company. The project owner is Outer Cape Health Services, and the owner’s project manager is DEC Consulting Company LLC.

When completed, the two-story, 18,000sf facility will provide Outer Cape Health Services with 18 new examination and consultation rooms, a dispensing pharmacy, lab drawing facilities, a community wellness space, administrative offices supporting specialized services for women infants and children (WIC), along with health insurance eligibility and enrollment services for the community.

“Delphi is honored to have been chosen to deliver this outstanding healthcare project for our client, “said Tony Freitas, Delphi project executive.

Construction is expected to be completed by late September.

“We look forward to continuing to work closely with DBVW Architects, Inc. and the other project stakeholders to deliver a final product that exceeds all expectations,” added Freitas.

Patricia Nadle, CEO of Outer Cape Health Services, commented on the start of construction. “We are very excited to be underway with this important project which will integrate primary care, behavioral health and supportive services in a team-based model. The floor plan doubles our capacity to serve the primary care needs of the Lower Cape with a full staff of physicians, advanced practitioners, nurses, medical assistants, social workers and dispensing pharmacy personnel. Relocating and expanding the existing Harwich facility enables OCHS to meet growing healthcare needs by providing new and essential services to more people.”
