Partners HealthCare expands footprint into New Hampshire

Wentworth-Douglass Hospital in Dover, N.H., became part of Boston-based Partners HealthCare on Jan. 1.

The 178-bed hospital was acquired by Boston-based Massachusetts General Hospital, which is part of Partners' network.

Mass General and Wentworth-Douglass have collaborated on several clinical programs over the years, beginning in 2008 when Wentworth-Douglass contracted with Mass General to provide remote telestroke service for patients in the Wentworth-Douglass emergency department.

"We are so pleased that Wentworth-Douglass Hospital has officially become a part of Mass General," said Peter L. Slavin, MD, president of Mass General. "Wentworth-Douglass has long been known for its outstanding care and commitment to community. Together, we look forward to continuing to grow, shape and strengthen our already successful and thriving relationship to benefit patients in the region."

Wentworth-Douglass will keep its name, but a new logo will be developed for the hospital that incorporates the Mass General name.
