Minuteman Health Statement on Elliot Hospital


BOSTON—Minuteman Health released the following statement today from Michael T. Boudreau, Chief Operating Officer, regarding Elliot Health Systems based in Manchester, NH.

“Minuteman Health is committed to offering affordable and quality care to its members. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to reach an agreement with Elliot Health Systems that we feel is consistent with our low-cost network strategy. We’re sorry to see Elliot leave the network, but are pleased that our strategy continues to provide New Hampshire individuals and employers with the opportunity to obtain real savings.

“Our HMO members in Hillsborough County will continue to have access to Catholic Medical Center in Manchester as well as Monadnock Community Hospital in Peterborough and St. Joseph Hospital in Nashua. Our POS members will still have access to Elliot Hospital through our Non-Preferred provider network under our First Health agreement.

We look forward to providing affordable choice for New Hampshire consumers in 2017 and will continue to strengthen our network and products to best serve our members.”
