Tim Ahern, Cheshire CareGiver and Cheshire Medical Center employee, walks the talk

Since its altruistic beginning 125 years ago as Elliot City Hospital, Cheshire Medical Center has relied upon the partnerships and goodwill within the community. “The Medical Center, charged with caring for and supporting the health and wellbeing of our region, would not be possible without the care and support of the people we serve,” explains Dr. Don Caruso, CEO/President and Chief Medical Officer.

Often, the “people we serve” Dr. Caruso references, are also physicians, associate providers, staff, and volunteers at the Medical Center. Most employees and volunteers at Cheshire, along with their family and friends, receive their healthcare at the Medical Center. Living, working, and raising families in the Monadnock Region gives Cheshire employees a unique personal investment in the health and wellbeing of our community.

“I give because it is the right thing to do. A smile, a kind word, a financial gift, can all have a positive effect on people’s lives.”  -Tim Ahern
