We are honored to serve you, and we’re proud to work with the hundreds of talented, dedicated individuals who make up our staff. We all share common goals: enhancing the safety of our patients and staff members, maintaining our high standards of excellence, and improving our patients’ experience.

Members of the leadership team collaborate closely with each other and with colleagues across the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health system, so that our patients and their families can benefit from the full breadth of our resources and expertise. We also remain committed to advancing our culture of inclusion by giving staff at every level a say in how we can best work together and improve our processes and procedures. Thank you for being a part of our community.
