At Cheshire Medical Center, an affiliate of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health (D-HH), your safety is our #1 priority. It’s important for you to know we are fully committed and ready to safely care for you.

Here are just some of the ways we’re protecting you and others:

Screening

We have reduced access at some entrances on our main campus to ensure every person entering is screened.

Everyone entering our facilities is screened for COVID-19 symptoms, temperature, recent travel, and given a mask to wear at all times.

Patients with COVID-19 related symptoms are treated in separate areas to help prevent the spread of infection.

Cleaning

We’re thoroughly and continuously cleaning all of our areas.

Social Distancing

We have altered our scheduling and intake processes, reducing the need for waiting areas so social distancing is easy.

We have rearranged many public spaces and waiting area so seating is at least 6 ft apart.

Visitors

We’ve updated our visitor policy and have inpatient staff ready to help patients connect via video or phone.

The Art Nichols Café is available for take-out only to patients and visitors, helping us enable social distancing at meal times.

Masks and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

All staff are wearing masks and other personal protective equipment, and we have plenty to cover all our needs.

Virtual visits

We also offer convenient virtual visits from the comfort of your own home. This helps you stay home and it helps us maintain social distancing throughout our facilities.

If you have additional questions about your upcoming appointment or procedure, please contact your provider's office.

At Cheshire Medical Center and all of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health, your health and safety remain our number one priority. And that is something that will never change.
