As part of the southern New Hampshire community, we are dedicated to serving the many health needs of the region’s families and advancing the standard of medical care for this part of the country.

It is made up of doctor’s offices, primary and specialty care providers, inpatient and outpatient care, a regional trauma center, home health services, a cancer center, rehabilitation services, a urology center, state-of-the-art neonatal, maternity and pediatric care, community services and education, mind/body medicine, wellness programs and many other services. We are here to serve you and your families every day of the year.

What is Elliot?

Mission and Vision

Elliot Health System strives to:

INSPIRE wellness
HEAL our patients
SERVE with compassion in every interaction.
The reasoning that supports the Mission:

  • Elliot’s role has changed over time and our community now counts on us to INSPIRE wellness and help avoid illness and injury…
  • We have a rich history rooted in caring for people who are sick and rely on us to HEAL them…
  • We SERVE our communities by providing quality care at a reasonable cost; by supporting community initiatives and serving those less fortunate through our foundation, our community benefits and advocacy.

I hope everyone makes an effort to know and understand the new mission. INSPIRE, HEAL, SERVE should guide you in your daily work and give you a feeling of pride in this great organization and what we do for the community and our patients.
