Lebanon NH -The Alice Peck Day Hospital (APD) Board of Trustees has voted to integrate its obstetrical service with the Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Nurse Midwifery department at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC). APD and DHMC are detailing and completing this integration work and are collaborating on a community-mothering program, intended to deliver parenting assistance in the homes of patients.

The integration plan calls for women currently under the care of APD obstetrical to deliver at the APD Birthing Center through July 14, 2018. Beginning on July 15, women currently under the care of APD obstetrical providers will deliver on the Birthing Pavilion at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

Prenatal and postnatal care will continue to be provided on the APD campus, and these services will be available at D-H’s Obstetrics Clinic, giving patients the opportunity to choose their preferred location.
