Expanding Care in the Granite State

Wentworth-Douglass Hospital (WDH) is expanding the depth and variety of local health services available to patients in New Hampshire’s Seacoast region. Over the next two years, the Portsmouth facility will grow to include a campus of three buildings, offer­ing comprehensive primary care, a women’s health and breast health center, medical and radiation oncology, diagnostics, orthopedics and sports medicine, and both general and plastic surgery – as well as subspecialty ser­vices through a relationship with Massachu­setts General Hospital. All of this has been made possible through positive growth and strong support from the local community.

This expansion beyond the main WDH Dover campus will also make a significant difference in the lives of people with sub­stance use disorders. WDH has been des­ignated as the Seacoast region services hub for Doorway-NH, a federal- and state-funded program that offers rehabilitation, recovery, and support services for these patients struggling with addiction to opioids, alcohol, and other drugs. The program, a significant step forward in the region’s efforts to combat the opioid crisis, simplifies the process of seeking and receiving support from licensed alcohol and drug counselors, who evaluate patients’ status and connect them to appro­priate services.

“The new approach will provide an integrated, one-stop shop model, offering the full array of treatment, recovery, and self-sufficiency services,” says New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu.
