Dartmouth-Hitchcock Joins Mayo Clinic Care Network
The Mayo Clinic announced on Friday that it has added a seventh member to it Mayo Clinic Care Network: The Dartmouth-Hitchcock healthcare system, which is known for its research into patient-centered healthcare.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock includes an academic medical center affiliated with Dartmouth College, an extensive clinic system, a children's hospital and a cancer center. It primarily serves northern New England.
The MCCN was created last year as part of a strategic effort by Rochester, MN-based Mayo Clinic to extend its brand and expertise without incurring the cost of new facilities or acquiring other hospitals. The addition of the New Hampshire-based health system mark's the network's first addition outside of the Mayo Clinic's core, mid-western market.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock, like the other hospitals in the network, will remain independent and maintain its own name.
