On May 31st, an estimated 100 providers and staff from Southern New Hampshire Health and Elliot Health System participated in SolutionHealth’s education program “From Stigma To Action: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Addressing Substance Use Disorder.” SolutionHealth’s latest in a series of CME programs was designed to help clinical providers and staff throughout the system understand added burden that stigma adds to individuals struggling with substance use disorders. The program featured presentations and discussion among providers and patients familiar with challenges and strategies to support treatment of patients through medication assisted treatment and other therapies.
SNHH's first class of UNECOM students finished their rotations at Southern New Hampshire Health back in July 2018 and were placed into their residency/fellowship training positions by the National Resident Matching Program (NMRP) this past March.
We are proud of our Top Docs for being recognized for their outstanding commitment to our patients. We celebrate, honor and thank all of our providers and the care teams that work with them.

Foundation Hematology/Oncology offers new technology to help patients keep their hair during chemotherapy
Men and women undergoing chemotherapy in southern New Hampshire now have access to a groundbreaking treatment to help reduce their hair loss. The Paxman Scalp Cooling System, also known as the “cold cap,” alleviates the damage chemotherapy causes to hair follicles, reducing the likelihood of hair loss in cancer patients with solid tumors, such as those from ovarian, breast, colorectal, bowel, and prostate cancer. During treatment, coolant is circulated through the system to the cap to keep the scalp cool and at a constant temperature. The cold cap is typically worn 30 minutes before the start of chemotherapy, during the period of receiving chemo, and up to 90 minutes after.
