Cheshire Medical Center: The Heart of Monadnock

For more than 125 years, Cheshire Medical Center has been a key contributor to the health and vitality of the Monadnock Region. As a not-for-profit community medical center, we’re deeply committed to delivering excellent care in a safe and welcoming environment.

Since 2015, Cheshire has been part of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health system. Our status as a regional referral center within the D-HH system offers many benefits to our patients and staff. Across the board, our partnership provides essential and state-of-the-art resources and an extended network of expert specialists to our patients.

We’re also committed to being a great neighbor, and we take pride in serving as an integral community resource. Cheshire is the area’s largest health care provider and leading employer. Along with the services delivered on our Keene campus and satellite locations, we partner with local organizations to provide vital services and programs throughout the region.

The care you need

Cheshire delivers friendly, safe, and committed care. As part of the D-HH system we have access to expertise and  many critical clinical services that aren’t typically available at rural hospitals. This includes everything from primary care to obstetrics, from cancer care to cardiology, and from audiology to orthopaedics. With 169 inpatient beds, we’re large enough to serve the community while maintaining a personal touch.

Access and outreach

We’re here for you, regardless of your needs, situation, or ability to pay. Our commitment to the health and well-being of individuals and families throughout our region is reflected in our community programs. Our deep partnerships with community organizations through The Center for Population Health support our extensive, innovative outreach efforts focused on removing barriers to good health throughout the region. 

Built on trust 

Cheshire has been a leader in our region for more than a century. You know us. You trust us. Now, as a member of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health system, we’re stronger than ever—and even better positioned to improve the health and wellness of you and your family.
