Health, Healing & Hope



For over 100 years, Catholic Medical Center (CMC) has been fulfilling its mission of providing

health, healing and hope to all.

As one of New Hampshire’s largest healthcare organizations, we are committed to fulfilling

our vision of providing the highest patient satisfaction, lowest cost and best outcomes for our

patients. At CMC, we take pride in having the most advanced technology while simultaneously

maintaining the “personal touch” that makes our hospital so special.

My history with CMC extends over two decades. Whether serving as Chief Medical Officer for

twelve years or as a board-certified internist within this community, I have witnessed first-hand

the incredibly talented and experienced individuals who directly contribute to our success.

We are committed to excelling in the clinical services we provide for the community we serve

and to fostering positive physician and employee morale.

CMC is looking for candidates that have a strong commitment to improving the quality of health

and to practicing evidence-based medicine. We practice in a team-based, patient-centered

environment where preventative care, management of chronic disease and coordinated

communication across the continuum of care is paramount.

We are looking for candidates that value and practice this same philosophy of care and I look

forward to meeting you.

100 Year History

The origin of Catholic Medical Center is rooted in the devotion of religious community members wanting to provide healthcare

to Manchester’s residents. The Hospital’s story began in 1858 with the arrival of Mother Mary Gonzaga, one of the original

Sisters of Mercy from Dublin, Ireland. Her dream was to establish a hospital sponsored by a religious community, which was

accomplished in 1892 with the opening of Sacred Heart Hospital, located in the center of New Hampshire’s Queen City of


Sharing a similar dream was Monsignor Peter Hevey, pastor of St. Mary’s Parish, and the Sisters of Charity of St. Hyacinthe.

They collaborated to open Notre Dame Hospital on the west side of Manchester in 1894. This location is the current site of

Catholic Medical Center.

After decades of providing medical services separately, the two hospitals merged in 1974, forming Catholic Medical Center,

with the dedication of a new building in 1978. Today, Catholic Medical Center (CMC) is one of New Hampshire’s largest

medical centers.
