2. Hospital Mergers - An Inside Look Hospitals are a major employer in New Hampshire, and certainly the cost and quality of health care is always a top-tier priority for employers and their workforce.
There have been several announced mergers between health systems in various parts of the state over the past year. Is this a trend? What is driving these decisions, and what are the hoped for outcomes?
Join us for a special look at hospital mergers "from the inside" with guests John Kacavas from Dartmouth-Hitchcock and Chris Callahan from Exeter Health Systems, two health organizations who are at different stages of the merger process.
