Cheshire is now a regional referral center within the system, which brings many benefits for our patients and staff.

Patients have access to outstanding specialists right here in our region. Shared electronic records make second opinions easy and the transition of care seamless. Being a D-HH member provides us with state-of-the-art resources and strengths.

Together, we will continue to preserve and improve the health of community members in the Monadnock Region.
