Home Turf: Presenting A New Space for RehabilitationA key to effective rehabilitation is helping people heal in spaces where they can practice the skills they need to return to daily living. That’s why the area behind the Bond Wellness Center has been transformed into a combination of athletic turf surface and rubberized mat exercise space along with an expanded patio area. Our incredible Rehabilitation department will utilize this outdoor space for therapy services including dynamic strengthening, balance, and agility training, along with rehabilitative sports training for patients of all ages and needs.

Volunteer Spotlight: Mary Frances Lawler, A Legacy of Dedication and Compassion at Monadnock Community HospitalFor over a decade, Mrs. Mary Frances Lawler has dedicated herself to MCH, accumulating an astounding 2,225 hours of service since 2012. Her presence on the MCH campus is synonymous with a warm smile and a heart full of compassion. Her service to patients and our community begins long before 2012 though, as she first filled her life with a career in nursing. Residing in Jaffrey, Mrs. Lawler's connection with MCH runs deep, interwoven with the hospital's history and mission of exceptional care. Her journey as a nurse traces back to her mother, who served as a night supervisor nurse at the hospital. This familial connection ignited her passion for nursing, leading her to start as a volunteer at MCH during her high school years. Determined to pursue her dreams, she worked at the 5 & 10 in Jaffrey to save for nursing school. Her educational path took her to the Carney Hospital School for Nurses and ultimately to a bachelor's degree in Rehabilitation Nursing from St. Anselm. She then landed a 50-year nursing career, including four decades at Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center. Throughout her career, she garnered numerous nursing awards, accolades, and letters praising her kindness, dedication, and lasting impact, a testament to her exceptional skills and unwavering dedication. As a mentor, Mrs. Lawler passed on her wisdom to the next generation of nurses, instilling in them the importance of going above and beyond for patients. Beyond her professional achievements, Mrs. Lawler has given back to her community in many ways, such as receiving a 30-year pin for her work with the Red Cross's Bloodmobile. Today, Mrs. Lawler continues her selfless journey as a volunteer in the hospital's Human Resources department. Her presence is celebrated with words like “Magnificent Amazing Resourceful Youthful, and Loyal Awesome Wonderful Loving Enthusiastic Reliable,” spelling out her name on a bulletin board, reflecting the impact she makes every day. "I go by the rules, and I don't fail," Mrs. Lawler declares with characteristic determination. Her journey has come full circle, from working as a nurse in a room next to the office where she now volunteers, showcasing her enduring bond with the hospital. Her reflection on MCH echoes its commitment to compassion and friendliness. Mrs. Lawler emphasizes that there's always a warm "good morning" from the staff, reinforcing the hospital's dedication to creating a supportive environment. Monadnock Community Hospital proudly salutes Mary Frances Lawler for her exceptional contributions to patient care, community well-being, and support for our staff. She embodies MCH's values, and her unwavering dedication continues to inspire us all. To join Mrs. Lawler and our incredible team of volunteers at Monadnock Community Hospital, please contact Toni Gildone, Volunteer Coordinator, at (603)924-7191 x4190. Together, we can make a difference in our community.

A Heartwarming Journey of Birth, Dedication, and Return at Monadnock Community HospitalIt's an exciting milestone year for Monadnock Community Hospital as it celebrates its 100th anniversary! Over the past century there have been many inspiring stories shared from those who were born at the hospital, patients who received excellent care, and employees who call the hospital their home away from home. This heartwarming story encapsulates it all, truly coming full circle. Monadnock Community Hospital is delighted to introduce Jackie Coll, who has been a member of the hospital's dedicated team for over a decade. Born as a twin in the maternity ward of MCH in the 80s, she later gave birth to both of her children in MCH’s Birthing Suite. Jackie started with the organization at New Ipswich Family Medicine, however, after a slight career change, she took a new role in a different capacity. As a member of the Information Technology team, her office is now the room that she was born in! “When our OB unit changed locations within MCH, the old unit rooms were transformed into offices that now house MCH’s IT department where I currently work,” Jackie explains. “The excitement of MCH’s 100th year anniversary inspired my mom and I to look at my old birth photos. To our incredible surprise my office is the very room I started life in! It brings me great honor to work in such a wonderful hospital that has always been and continues to be an enormous part of my life.” With a background in nursing and information technology, Jackie brings a wealth of experience and a passion for making a positive impact in the lives of patients. This remarkable journey from birth to professional fulfillment encapsulates the hospital's commitment to nurturing and supporting individuals at every stage of life. "This is a rare and wonderful occurrence," says Cyndee McGuire, President and CEO of Monadnock Community Hospital. "To have an individual born within our walls return years later to work in the same room where they were first cared for as an infant is a testament to the deep-rooted connections that our hospital fosters within the community." The hospital's centennial year continues to be a time of reflection, gratitude, and forward-looking initiatives. As Monadnock Community Hospital remains committed to providing exceptional care and support to the community, Jackie’s story embodies the spirit of healthcare excellence, community engagement, and compassionate service that has defined the hospital for the past 100 years. Jackie's journey serves as a reminder that the bonds formed within these walls extend far beyond the walls themselves.
