INTRODUCTION

          NEW LONDON HOSPITAL

            	 OUR MISSION: New London Hospital provides safe quality care for every patient,
            	 every time in partnership with patients, families and healthcare providers.

            New London Hospital is a 25-bed rural community hospital with a 58-bed long-term extended care center.
            In April of 2003 we became a Critical Access Hospital. The beds may be used for acute care as well as
            swing beds (for patients who need hospitalization, but are not considered acute care patients).

            New London Hospital is a member of the New England Alliance for Health (NEAH). NEAH is a consortium
            of 17 member organizations in Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. It offers member services in
            the areas of quality improvement, financial planning, benchmarking, materials management, pharmacy
            services, education and development for professional staff and trustees, collaborative regional health
            planning, and access to property and casualty insurance.

            Collaborative agreements with the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Concord Hospital help us
            meet the needs of those patients who require a tertiary care setting. These agreements also allow us to
            bring many services to our patients and the community that are usually only found in larger hospitals.

          WILLIAM P. CLOUGH EXTENDED CARE CENTER

            At the William P. Clough Extended Care Center at New London Hospital, we are committed to high

2 standards of care. We are small enough to know all of the residents and their families. Our skilled care
            program is designed as a transition program for patients who are able to return to their home or assisted
            care living situations. A group of hospitalists (medical doctors and nurse practitioners with a special
            interest in geriatrics) provide on-site care to residents five days a week. The facility has large spacious
            rooms with wide hallways and ramps for easy wheelchair access. Located in the same building as New
            London Hospital, emergency medical care is literally only seconds away. From the linen tablecloths in the
            dining room to daily one-on-one companionship and social activities, we make the William P. Clough
            Extended Care Center like home. The residents don’t live in our facility. We work in their home.
