BRATTLEBORO, Vt.—The hospital in the Vermont town of Brattleboro is joining a regional hospital alliance led by New Hampshire's Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital in Lebanon.

On Dec. 1 Brattleboro Memorial Hospital will join the Northeast Alliance for Health under which Dartmouth-Hitchcock shares services with 15 health care organizations in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Massachusetts.

Brattleboro Memorial serves southeastern Vermont's largest city and surrounding communities, including neighboring New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

Brattleboro President Steven Gordon says joining the alliance will enable his hospital to have access to group purchasing agreements and other services, which will enhance efforts to deliver cost-effective, quality patient care.
