Complex Cases

If you have or think you might have a number of diverse medical conditions that will require a lot of care from multiple providers, you will be best served by a hospital and physicians with extensive experience in complex cases like yours. Dartmouth-Hitchcock manages many of the most complex patient cases in New England.

An example of a complex case would be someone who has a chronic condition like diabetes or heart disease, complications like a history of falls, and mental/behavioral health issues who will need many specialists with varied treatments, health supports, medications, and follow-ups.
