In 2009, leaders created the infrastructure to allow Dartmouth-Hitchcock to strategically partner with other health service providers in the region to achieve its mission of improving population health within our region, while avoiding costly and unnecessary duplication of services. Establishing a broader footprint (close to 2 million covered lives) will allow us to more effectively manage both the quality and the cost of keeping populations healthy. There is tremendous power in all of us working collaboratively.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health (D-HH) has and is synonymous with quality, value-based care, tradition, pride and passion for community health, as well as academic and research excellence. When D-HH was formed as the parent health system entity, its provider affiliates included Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic, which includes community-based physician group practices in Concord, Keene, Manchester and Nashua. Since 2013, five new provider affiliates have been added to the D-HH system. These include: New London Hospital, Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center, Cheshire Medical Center, Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital, and the Visiting Nurse and Hospice of Vermont and New Hampshire.
