Community Impact

Deeply Rooted in the Community

All of us at Derry Medical Center are committed to being a presence in the lives of our patients. For almost 50 years we have fostered generations of healthy families in Southern New Hampshire’s communities.

We continue to partner with and support a variety of local and national organizations that enhance the lives of our patients via community activities or health-related research and patient education, including:
