We have an identity as an organization that is influenced by geography, experiences and the communities we serve.
Who we are is defined by our core values that make us Dartmouth-Hitchcock.
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.
A New System
The new system generates nearly $2 billion in revenues and is the largest private employer in the state of New Hampshire. As New Hampshire’s only academic medical system with the only Level 1 trauma center, the D-HH system is the largest provider of health care in the state and the second largest in Vermont. Twenty-four Dartmouth-Hitchcock clinics provide ambulatory services across New Hampshire and Vermont. We serve more than 30 percent of the population of Manchester, 25 percent of the population in Nashua and 20 percent of the population of Concord. We care for 40 percent of the citizens of Vermont.
D-HH has more than 12,000 permanent full- and part-time employees at locations in New Hampshire and Vermont. Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health includes:
- More than 2,010 physicians, residents and fellows, and associate providers
- More than 1,925 direct-care nurses
- More than 1,774 allied health professionals
The main lab at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center has been newly renovated with the input of Clinical Laboratory Scientists and includes bright, airy spaces flooded with natural light. Using the latest technology, the labs process over 1,000,000 samples per month. Team members also have the opportunity to train pre-service CLS students, participate in youth outreach, pursue lab improvement projects, and advance professionally in a wide variety of bench and non-bench roles.
