Seamless connections to your 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 will be 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 currently have a primary care provider, we can start the paperwork during your urgent visit. We regret, we are no longer able to offer urgent visits to people who have primary care providers not affiliated with Dartmouth Health.
