Our Vision

New London Hospital is a community hospital committed to safe quality care in a patient and family centered care environment resulting in a healthier community.

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 (NLH) is a 25-bed rural community hospital serving the Lake Sunapee region in central New Hampshire. Although our mission is virtually the same today as it was at our founding in 1918 – to provide quality primary care and specialized clinical services in a caring environment – we continue to grow and evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of the communities we serve.

New London Hospital offers primary care for the entire family, ambulance and emergency services, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services, a 24-hour emergency department, diagnostic imaging, laboratory, acute and critical care, and a full array of surgical services including orthopedics. We offer a wide range of wellness and prevention programs, such as CPR and first aid, and sponsor several community benefit programs such as a school-based health care center.

A Critical Access Hospital

In April of 2003, NLH received designation as a Critical Access Hospital (CAH) after a successful survey of the hospital by the state of New Hampshire. CAH is a federal program designed to support small rural non-profit hospitals across the country. Under CAH, New London Hospital maintains 15 acute care inpatient beds and 10 swing beds (beds for patients who need hospitalization but are not considered acute care patients) for a total of 25 beds. Another important part of CAH status includes an established relationship with a tertiary care hospital, met by a collaborative agreement with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
