MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Two New Hampshire health systems that plan to combine resources are holding four community “listening sessions” to gain public input.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health and GraniteOne are holding the sessions in Manchester on May 13; Wolfeboro on May 14; Lebanon on May 15; and Peterborough on June 6.

They announced in January that they plan to combine the organizations. They seek to improve access to high-quality care for individuals and families throughout New Hampshire and invest in needed capacity, improve quality and manage costs.
