COVID-19: Information for Our Community

In the wake of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have created this page to keep the community up to date on the latest developments.

MCH, along with other hospitals across New Hampshire, are working in conjunction with state and federal officials to anticipate, plan, and minimize the impact of COVID-19. As always, our primary focus is the safety and well-being of our patients, employees, and the members of the community.

MCH is ready and prepared to care for the communities we serve during this COVID-19 pandemic. We activated our Incident Command protocols on February 26th and are meeting daily to determine how to best utilize our available resources. In addition, our infection prevention experts are in close contact with our state and regional partners, enabling them to share the latest information with patients, staff, and visitors.

COVID-19 Volunteer Corps

As part of our proactive COVID-19 surge planning at Monadnock Community Hospital, we are creating a database of community volunteers who are willing to step up to help support our staff and patients if needed.  If you would like to help, please complete our Volunteer form.  And please share with your friends and neighbors!  We don’t know how many volunteers we will need, and when, but this survey will help us to build a network of people we can tap into as needed. Our plan is to contact those who seem best suited to each assignment as needs arise, so please be patient. In order to allow the hospital staff to focus on patients, please do not call MCH in regard to volunteer assignments. Initial contact will most likely be through email.

We appreciate your support! If you have trouble with the link, please email us at mchcovid19volunteers@gmail.com or call Sharon Smith at 603-924-6146. If you have questions about volunteering for MCH, please call Toni Gildone, MCH Volunteer Coordinator, at 603-924-4699 ext. 4190.
