We are the health care safety net for 1.9 million residents in Northern New England. When our neighbors need us, we must be ready—providing them with the most advanced medical care, delivered with compassion, as close to home as possible."

The best care, close to home

More than 300 patients are unable to access Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center each month because there are no beds available. These are children and adults with a variety of care needs—heart attacks, brain aneurysms, premature births, the list goes on. Instead of receiving superb, sophisticated care close to home, near families and loved ones, these patients must be sent to medical centers hours away, at great cost and inconvenience—and at added risk from the delay in receiving care.

To meet the urgent needs of our region, we’re building a new Patient Pavilion. Scheduled to open in 2023, it will provide spacious, state-of-the-art private rooms to meet current needs, as well as unfinished space to allow for future expansion. Dartmouth Health is seeking $15 million in support from the community to help fund this $150 million project.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock is a critically important resource for the Upper Valley, and it’s vital that those of us who have the ability to do so help to sustain it through our charitable giving."
