Lebanon is blessed with two exceptional healthcare facilities within the city limits.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC)
One of New England’s premier teaching and research hospitals, DHMC is located on a 225-acre campus in Lebanon. Patients can rely on DHMC to provide all levels of care, from primary and preventive care services to sub-specialty services for the most complex conditions. Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is comprised of Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital (founded in 1893), the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic (a network of more than 900 primary and specialty care physicians throughout New Hampshire and Vermont), Dartmouth Medical School (founded in 1797), and the Veterans Affairs Medical and Regional Office Center in White River Junction, Vermont.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock is one of New Hampshire’s largest employers, with more than 8,000 dedicated physicians, nurses, researchers, administrative and other non-clinical staff statewide, and more than 6,200 at DHMC in Lebanon. DHMC is home to CHaD (the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth), New Hampshire’s only children’s hospital, as well as the Norris Cotton Cancer Center, one of only 40 nationwide designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a comprehensive cancer center. The Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth and Norris Cotton Cancer Center each provide services in multiple locations in Vermont and New Hampshire, making it more convenient for patients to get the care they need. DHMC is nationally recognized for excellence in many specialties, including heart and vascular surgery, orthopedic surgery and neurosciences.
DHMC is also New Hampshire’s only Level 1 trauma center and is served by the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Advanced Response Team (DHART), the region’s air ambulance service. Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is also a magnet hospital, a recognition awarded by the American Nurses Credentialing Center to a select group of hospitals that meet the highest standards of nursing excellence.
