"This is a particularly challenging time for hospitals, with dramatic changes in the approach to patient care and economics of health care. This affiliation allows these strong community hospitals to address those challenges in a true New Hampshire way. It keeps the control local and allows the hospitals to expand the services they provide to their patients. It’s a win whenever you can offer people more without increasing costs, and this affiliation will do just that."
CMC has a long-standing clinical relationship with Huggins to provide cardiology and vascular care and, more recently, hospitalists. CMC has similar relationships with Monadnock to provide cardiology and vascular care, rheumatology, neurology, and shared hospitalists and laboratory services.
We can build on these collaborations to create more opportunities for patients and their families to have greater access to high quality, affordable care, closer to home. An affiliation could also assist Huggins and Monadnock in recruiting and retaining clinical care providers. CMC, in turn, will be able to extend more of its award-winning services to long-standing strategic partners. The affiliation would allow each of these organizations to execute a shared vision of providing high quality, value-based care for their patients and communities.
