Minuteman Health welcomes Southern
New Hampshire Health Systems into network

MANCHESTER—Minuteman Health (www.minutemanhealth.org) today announced that Nashua-based Southern New Hampshire Health System has joined its In-Plan Provider Network.

Southern New Hampshire Health System is made up of Southern New Hampshire Medical Center and its affiliated multi-specialty provider group, Foundation Medical Partners. The Health System is committed to the improvement, maintenance and preservation of the health of people in the greater Nashua area.

“Southern New Hampshire Health has been providing wonderful care to residents in and around Nashua for more than a century, and we’re extremely proud to welcome them into the Minuteman In-Plan Provider Network. Our goal is to provide top-level care at affordable prices, and Southern New Hampshire Health is a great addition for our network and our members,” said Minuteman Chief Operating Officer Michael Boudreau.

Southern New Hampshire Health began as an 8-bed emergency hospital in 1893 and has grown to a 188-bed acute care facility that retains the personal touch of a traditional community hospital, while offering patients the resources of a regional medical center. Located in the heart of downtown Nashua, the Medical Center today has a medical staff of over 500 primary and specialty care providers from Foundation Medical Partners, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Nashua and local independent practices. The hospital is now housed on two Nashua campuses and continues its 120-year tradition of providing innovative health programs and preventive health resources to the community.

CHOICES members are non-profit as well as investor-owned, health system-sponsored and independent, and newer entrants as well as companies with decades of experience as members of their local communities. The group came together to examine what gaps may exist between the policy intent and the practical reality of the ‘3Rs’ programs today. Such gaps are to be expected in any launch of a new methodology, and CHOICES looks forward to continuing to work productively with CMS to replace old assumptions with the current data.

CHOICES founding members include Minuteman Health, Health New England (Massachusetts), HealthyCT (Connecticut), Land of Lincoln (Illiniois), Melody Health Care (Colorado), New Mexico Health Connections, Evergreen Health (Maryland), Bright Health Plans (Minnesota), Cox Health Plans (Missouri), Medical Associates Health Plans (Iowa), and the National Alliance of State Health CO-OPS (NASHCO).
