 Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (Lebanon N.H.). With a more than 120-year history, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is New Hampshire's only academic medical center — affiliated with the school of medicine at Hanover-based Dartmouth College — and is the only Level I trauma center in the state. 

Dartmouth-Hitchcock-Medical-Center-factsThe hospital has ties to nearly 1,500 physicians and includes the Norris Cotton Cancer Center, one of 41 centers in the country to receive designation as a comprehensive cancer center from the National Cancer Institute. DHMC is Magnet-recognized for nursing excellence, and U.S. News & World Report ranked it as the top hospital in the state in 2013-14.

As a hospital, DHMC strives for excellence at an individual level, but also for the greater good. It constantly seeks out partners and stakeholders who are interested in furthering quality of care while reducing costs for patients. In December 2010, DHMC, along with Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., Denver Health, Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake City and Cleveland Clinic, announced the formation of the High Value Healthcare Collaborative to improve healthcare, lower costs and make best practices available to the national provider community. Furthering its commitment to improve healthcare and lower costs, the hospital became one of the first 32 Medicare Pioneer accountable care organizations when the program started in 2012.
