A Message From Our President

Next month, on October 15-17th, we will be hosting our premier membership event, the New Hampshire Hospital Association and Foundation for Healthy Communities’ Annual Meeting, at the OMNI Mount Washington Hotel.  This event is an excellent opportunity to engage with fellow members and partners, exchange ideas, and contribute to the decisions that will shape our collective future. Our theme, “Standing Strong: Today. Tomorrow. Always.” is a perfect description of what we witness day in and day out from each and every hospital in New Hampshire who are dedicated to serving their patients and communities despite the many challenges that they face.


If you haven’t registered yet, please visit our website for more information.  Also be sure to review our list of corporate sponsors who are helping to underwrite the cost of this event.  Their engagement is an important part of our meeting so please be sure to thank them for their generosity and support.


We look forward to your presence at the Annual Meeting and appreciate your commitment to our collective success. Together, we can achieve remarkable milestones and foster a future filled with moments of health, healing and hope.
