North Country Healthcare
The long-planned affiliation of the four North Country hospitals—Androscoggin Valley Hospital, Littleton Regional Healthcare, Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital, and Weeks Medical Center— launches a new system called North Country Healthcare. Its purpose is to coordinate the activities of the four hospitals in the areas of planning, administration, purchasing, human resources, marketing, finance, and contracting. Its goal will be to maintain access to high quality, affordable healthcare throughout the North Country.
The new arrangement maintains the four independently governed North Country hospitals as critical access hospitals providing care in their local communities. The four hospitals retain their names, their individual Boards of Trustees, and control of their assets and charitable endowments. Warren West, head of Littleton Regional Healthcare, and Russ Keene, formerly head of Androscoggin Valley Hospital, have been selected by the new board to lead the new system, West as CEO and Keene as President and CFO.
