Teenager Shane Foye could barely walk by the time he saw Dr. Kenneth Weintraub, an orthopaedic surgeon at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Nashua. Weintraub determined that Shane had a septic hip, and within 24 hours he was being operated on by Dr. Christopher Cook, a pediatric orthopaedist at DHMC in Lebanon. "He immediately felt better in postop," says Shane's dad, Sean. The collaboration between Nashua and the rest of the D-H system will only improve when a new 140,000-square-foot facility opens in January 2012. It will consolidate in one location the services that are currently located at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Nashua East, West, and Squires Centers, while also allowing for expanded specialty offerings and growth in the region.
