We are honored to serve you, and we’re proud to work with the hundreds of exceptional, 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 care, and delivering an excellent experience for our patients.

Members of the leadership team collaborate closely with each other and with colleagues across the Dartmouth Health system, so that our patients may benefit from the full breadth of our resources and expertise. We hold a deep commitment to safety and quality, and a culture that values the contribution of every staff member and volunteer.

As the Monadnock Region’s leading care provider, we strive to make Cheshire a place that patients choose not just for convenience, but for quality care. As the Monadnock Region’s leading employer, we strive to make Cheshire an innovative, inclusive, and welcoming place for professionals to work, with high standards of professionalism and an appreciation of every team member.
