Patient privacy is a priority at Cheshire Medical Center as well as at all Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health (D-HH) member organizations. In order to protect patient confidentiality within federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) guidelines, all members of the news media will be escorted by a member of the Marketing and Communications staff while visiting our facilities.

The Marketing and Communications team will also facilitate interviews with our providers and staff unless prior arrangements are made and agreed upon.
