Catholic Medical Center and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health File Notice of Withdrawal

March 10, 2011
Manchester, NH

Catholic Medical Center and Dartmouth-Hitchcock have been working together for a number of years to expand access to high quality health care in greater Manchester. Our shared objective has been and remains simple: provide the best possible care to the community.

The Boards of Trustees for Catholic Medical Center and Dartmouth-Hitchcock have authorized a withdrawal from the Hillsborough County Probate Court filing which requests approval for the parties' proposed affiliation. The evolving changes in health care reforms have prompted CMC and Dartmouth-Hitchcock to reevaluate the nature of the proposed affiliation and reassure the public of their priorities. "Dartmouth-Hitchcock and CMC remain fully committed to providing the highest quality health care services for the people of greater Manchester," said Alyson Pitman Giles, President and CEO of Catholic Medical Center, and Dr. Thomas A. Colacchio, President of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health. "Our teams are staying focused on the programs we know will expand access and services to our patients."

The two organizations have already achieved remarkable results together and will continue to pursue collaborative efforts and shared programs, as they have for over six years. "We are very proud of our teams that work together at CMC's Special Care Nursery and Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Norris Cotton Cancer Center in Manchester. Whether it is medical expertise, state-of-the-art technology, or convenient service for our patients, CMC and Dartmouth-Hitchcock are working together to make it available to the community."
