Seamless connections to your Dartmouth Health providers

If you are a patient of Cheshire Medical Center, then shared records between our urgent visits team, your primary care team, and specialty medicine keep everyone on the same page. You can also access your medical records and contact your provider through our shared myDH patient portal.

Urgent visits are available to Cheshire patients and community members who wish to establish care with a primary care provider at Cheshire or our satellite locations in Walpole and Winchester. If you don’t have a primary care provider, we can start the paperwork during your urgent visit.
