Stronger Together

Provider working with a patient

We are entirely dedicated to the wellness of the people of the Monadnock Region

At Cheshire Medical Center, it is our priority to serve this community and to provide the best care, when you need it most. Even when times are tough, we’ve learned that when we work together, we can stay strong and make a difference for New Hampshire.

To our community:

For more than 130 years, Cheshire Medical Center’s mission has been to advance the health and wellness of the Monadnock Region by delivering outstanding care and exceptional service to the people and communities we serve. It’s a mission that our team members – your friends, neighbors, family members – strive to meet each and every day.

The past three years have been especially difficult for healthcare organizations nationwide due to the pandemic and unprecedented staffing challenges, and Cheshire Medical Center has not been immune. This was compounded by a series of significant challenges specific to our institution. We want to assure you of our commitment to proactively identify and address all of these issues as we redouble our efforts to be the world-class organization you deserve.

The good news is that difficult times have brought about important changes for our hospital community, and improvements that, we are confident, will make us stronger going forward.

It is our goal to strengthen our culture of excellence, continuing to be a place where people want to work and where patients turn for critical and compassionate care. We must always be an organization that our community considers an exceptionally capable and trusted resource and partner. Anything less is not an option.

Over the coming months, you will hear more from us about how we are moving forward. We encourage you to follow our progress by visiting our website. If you are invited to respond to a survey or join a focus group, we hope you will take the time to participate. And, if you wish to share a comment or question in the meantime, you may contact us through our website – your input and feedback are important to us.

We are exceptionally proud of our team’s dedication, we are honored to play an essential role in the health and wellbeing of this unique corner of northern New England, and we look forward to serving you for many years to come.

Not All Heroes Wear Capes, Not All Nurses Wear Scrubs

While Cheshire boasts many scrub-wearing superheroes among our nursing ranks, many nurses report to work wearing “normal” clothes—and all sorts of different hats.
