MILFORD – A barn that was among the 1920s-era buildings used by the Milford Medical Center was torn down this week as part of continuing work on a new building.

St. Joseph Hospital will open a multi-level, 19,500-square-foot outpatient facility on Nashua Street in the summer of 2015. All services are being offered during construction.

St. Joseph Hospital opened Milford Medical Center at 442 Nashua St. in 1977 using buildings that have been expanded over the years. The barn was empty and the other buildings will be demolished after the new center is in use, officials said.

The center was the only stand-alone emergency room in New Hampshire until the hospital switched it to an urgent care facility in December 2013, offering non-emergency diagnosis and treatment of minor illnesses and injuries.

Hospital officials said the move was necessary because between 2008 and 2013 the number of visits to the ER had decreased by 43 percent, as patients sought lower cost options.
