I have come to understand that we all share the same vision, an outstanding hospital providing the highest quality of care to our entire community. Concord Hospital is one of the treasures of central New Hampshire and I speak for Concord Hospital Trust when I pledge that we will strive to fulfill our charitable mission, never losing sight of the “trust” our supporters put in us to do so,” said Claudia Walker, Trust board chair.
