New Hampshire pain practice to shut down — 4 things to know

Somersworth, N.H.-based Seacoast Pain Institute of New England is set to close Nov. 27, fosters.com reports.

2. The Center for Pain Management will begin offering office consultations, procedures, ketamine infusions and other pain management services on Dec. 2, the first business day after Seacoast Pain Institute closes.

3. Six unnamed providers from Seacoast Pain Institute will join the newly expanded Center for Pain Management in December, a hospital spokesperson told fosters.com.
