More Powerful Than Medicine

As New Hampshire's premier health network, we see our patients as real people, not just a diagnosis.

We know the role we play in people’s lives, isn’t just to get people better. It’s to help them stay well. So, whether that means providing peace of mind to a patient and their family or one on one rehabilitative care, we want to get you back to your life moments as soon as possible. And for us, that’s more powerful than medicine.

Twenty patients, their Dartmouth-Hitchcock care providers and other D-H support staff participated in the filming of a television commercial on the front lawn outside of the main DHMC entrance. I participated in the making of this commercial and enjoyed getting to meet these patients and watching them interact with their health care teams. It was like a family reunion, which I think speaks volumes to the strong bonds that form between our patients and our staff. The television ad is part of a larger brand awareness campaign that will be presented through various media including digital, outdoor and social. Our patients shared their letters of appreciation with us, and through this campaign, we are honored to share their stories and sentiments with you.
