Wentworth-Douglass Earns Best of The Seacoast Honors

Best of the Seacoast 2019

Wentworth-Douglass Hospital recently earned “Best of the Seacoast” Awards in several major categories. Best of the Seacoast is awarded by the Seacoast Media Group, publishers of Foster’s Daily Democrat, the Portsmouth Herald, and several local weekly newspapers. What makes the Best of the Seacoast Awards unique is they are truly driven by the Seacoast community. Individuals are asked to nominate and vote for their favorite organizations or services. 

Wentworth-Douglass is honored to be recognized in these categories. Thanks to everyone who voted for us!
