Wentworth-Douglass joins the Mass General family.

Two award-winning hospitals, one great team.

Tim Wakefield, two-time world champion, is excited to announce that Wentworth-Douglass Hospital has joined the Mass General family.

Two champions are better than one.

Wentworth-Douglass joined the Massachusetts General Hospital and Mass General Brigham families earlier this year, enabling us to deliver enhanced health care services and create an innovative health experience for you – right here on the Seacoast. While Mass General has clinical affiliations with other hospitals in this region, Wentworth-Douglass is now the only hospital in New Hampshire that is part of the Mass General system.

Benefits to you

Together, Wentworth-Douglass and Mass General will continue to enhance and grow the quality care and services available for patients and their families in the community.

World Renowned Care, Locally
Wentworth-Douglass and Mass General have had a clinical affiliation since 2008 that has grown to now offer specialty services in stroke, trauma, thoracic surgery, gynecologic oncology, epilepsy, electrophysiology and cancer genetics and clinical trials – with more services planned for the future. You now have access to more services locally, reducing the need to drive long distances for specialized care while also providing a direct link to Mass General for conditions and injuries that require a higher level of care.

Cutting-Edge Care
Wentworth-Douglass provides care with evidence-based best practice approaches and now has the added benefit of working with one of the nation’s leading hospitals for care protocols and training. In conjunction with our existing network of skilled primary care and specialty providers, new skills and technology will mean innovative patient care is available, right here in the Seacoast for you and your family.

Seamless Information Sharing
Medical, diagnostic and pharmaceutical information will soon be accessible for caregivers through a shared (and secure) electronic medical record system.  This makes transitions in care safer, provides care in a more cost-effective manner by reducing unnecessary testing, and improves the efficiency and coordination of care.

Wentworth-Douglass remains a non-profit hospital with your needs and desires at the center of all we do. By joining the Mass General family, we will advance our mission to partner with you to attain your highest level of health. We’ll provide increased access to new clinical expertise, and better medical record and information systems to create great patient experiences, every. We’re one team, working for you.
