 Dr. Jack Kirk receives
 NHHA 2016 Medical Staff Award

   NLH’s Dr. Jack Kirk was recently honored by the New Hampshire Hospital Association with its 2016 Medical
   Staff Award. Jack’s hundreds of patients and dozens of colleagues know how deserving he is of this very
   special statewide honor.

   An internal medicine physician, Dr. Kirk (“just call me ‘Jack’”) has been on the NLH medical staff since 1977,
   with a break from 2002 until 2007, when he practiced at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Many of his patients followed
   him “up the road” and then back again, thereby remaining his patients for decades. Throughout his career,
   Jack has been a leader in preventive and holistic medicine, compassionately caring for
   the complete person, not just treating a symptom or managing a diagnosis. Over
   the years, he has also developed an expertise in Geriatrics, partly due to the aging
   of patients he has served for many years.

   Jack is also a long-time teacher and mentor to younger doctors, having devoted
   over 40 years to education through his academic appointments at the Geisel
   School of Medicine. He has been a dedicated preceptor for medical students and
   residents in internal and preventive medicine. Currently Jack serves as President of
   the NLH Medical Staff and as an ex-officio member on the NLH Board of Trustees.

   We are so proud of Jack and grateful for his impact on individuals, families and
   the community, and for the tremendous influence he continues to have on
   our organization. As summed up by one of his patients, “Dr. Jack Kirk
   practices medicine the way every doctor should. He is extraordinary!”
