Urgent Appointments

The Urgent Appointments Departments at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Concord, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Manchester, and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Nashua provide services for adults and children with short-term and minor illnesses or injuries. It is open during times that you might find it difficult to make an appointment with your family doctor (primary care provider, or PCP).
