We have been working diligently to reach an agreement with the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office on our combination. Despite many months of negotiations, the parties were not able to agree on all of the terms. We reached an impasse late yesterday afternoon and will not receive the regulatory approval we need to move forward.
This outcome is disappointing for GraniteOne Health and its members—CMC, Huggins Hospital and Monadnock Community Hospital. It’s also disappointing for the patients and communities of New Hampshire. Based on the public forums we held last fall, it was clear how much the community supports our organizations and recognized the benefits this combination would have provided.
CMC is and remains an incredibly strong organization dedicated to our mission and supported by our community and our patients. Our unparalleled team looks forward to building a bright future for health care in southern New Hampshire.
