ConvenientMD and North Country Healthcare Announce Partnership
ConvenientMD, a leading provider of urgent care and walk-in medical services in New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts, and North Country Healthcare (NCH), a leading network of critical access hospitals in northern New Hampshire (including Weeks Medical Center), are excited to announce a clinical collaboration to improve access to medical care to North Country residents.
By working with North Country Healthcare—the parent organization of numerous critical access hospitals and one home health and hospice agency in northern New Hampshire—ConvenientMD’s Littleton clinic will assist area healthcare providers such as primary care physicians, specialists, and hospitals to ensure patients receive integrated, comprehensive, and affordable care.
ConvenientMD creates tangible solutions to some of the biggest issues faced in healthcare today while offering high-quality urgent care services at affordable rates. Each location is staffed with a compassionate, full medical team with decades of experience in urgent care, emergency room, and primary care settings.
“Our collaboration with ConvenientMD’s new facility in Littleton will help strengthen the area’s healthcare system while providing patients throughout the community with improved access to high quality, affordable care,” commented North Country Healthcare CEO Tom Mee. “This partnership supports NCH’s mission of ensuring consistent, high quality, accessible, and integrated healthcare across the communities we serve. The reality of healthcare today, particularly in rural communities, is that organizations need to partner to avoid duplication of services, lower costs, and ensure the highest quality care.”
“We look forward to collaborating with North Country Healthcare and its affiliated hospitals to support their primary care practices and to take advantage of their specialist network as a means of keeping patients out of crowded emergency departments and improving the health of the community,” says ConvenientMD Urgent Care CEO Max Puyanic.
“The benefits of collaborating with healthcare providers and hospitals in the North Country offers exciting opportunities to enhance patient care,” echoes ConvenientMD chief medical officer Dr. Mark Pundt. “From increasing access to quality care in the community to reducing ER wait times, we feel ConvenientMD’s collaboration with NCH will play a key role in streamlining healthcare in the North Country area.”
