Monadnock Community Hospital (MCH) is the hub of a vibrant medical community, with exceptional primary care physicians, state-of-the-art diagnostics, and common medical services for childbirth, routine surgery, orthopaedics and rehabilitation after major illnesses. The Hospital also staffs several departments specializing in the treatment of heart disease and cancer.
Monadnock Community Hospital has a unique relationship with the community we serve. We ask our community what we can do to keep the community healthy. We do what they ask for, even when what they ask for is outside the traditional role of a community hospital. From creating our state-of-the-art wellness center, to sending our dental hygienist "Tooth Fairy" to local schools, to helping pay for prescription drugs - what our community needs, we provide.
Monadnock Community Hospital is a 25-bed critical access hospital that started in 1919, when Robert M. Parmelee donated his summer home in Peterborough for use as a community hospital, and in 1923 "The Peterborough Hospital" opened its doors. Parmelee hoped that his contribution would create a local hospital which the residents of the area would consider their own and would continue to support in the coming years. Mr. Parmelee's dream of a community-supported hospital has become a reality. Monadnock Community Hospital is an integral part of the healthcare community in the Monadnock Region.
The MCH Medical Staff includes over 125 primary and Specialty care physicians, 15 dentists and 23 health professional affiliates. Monadnock Community Hospital owns a primary care network of physicians, nurse practitioners, psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers. This network provides a wide range of primary and behavioral health care services for individuals and families with offices in Peterborough, Jaffrey, Antrim and New Ipswich.
