Four Northern New Hampshire Hospitals Working Toward Affiliation

August 11, 2014

Join us for a Community Meeting!

West, CEO from Littleton Regional Heatlhcare; Peter Gosline, Interim Cheif Administrative Officer at Upper Connecticut Valley; and Scott Howe, CEO at Weeks Memorial Hospital with back row from left (standing) Board Chairs, Mark Kelly; Stevan Trooboff; Greg Placy; and David Atkinson meet to sign a letter of intent.

For more than a year now, four northern New Hampshire hospitals have been meeting to explore whether or not affiliating in some way would help deal with the challenges we face as small, rural community hospitals in a health care environment that is in the midst of significant change.

On Monday, July 21, 2014 Board chairs and leadership from Androscoggin Valley Hospital, Littleton Regional Healthcare, Weeks Memorial Hospital and Upper Connecticut Valley met to sign a letter of intent. This Letter of Intent provides a way forward for each of the organizations working together with the others to seek both the regulatory approvals we will need for any type of true business affiliation, as well as to do the detailed business planning that would guide it.

Community members are encouraged to attend one of four community meetings to learn more about this affiliation and how it may affect your Hospital.
