Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene (CMC/DHK) is pleased to welcome Judith Carpenter, PA, to our Department of Family Medicine.  Prior to joining CMC/DHK, Carpenter worked as a Physician Assistant at Grace Cottage Family Health in Townshend, VT and also provided coverage in their Emergency Department.

At CMC/DHK, physician assistants work with primary care physicians and nurse practitioners providing care in a team environment known as a medical home. A medical home empowers patients to be active participants in their health and well-being. The medical home team integrates all aspects of a person's preventive, acute, and chronic care, offering patients comfort, convenience, and optimal health throughout their lifetimes. CMC/DHK implemented a medical home model as a component of the healthiest community initiative, to help prevent and manage chronic conditions. It is one way CMC/DHK is working to make Cheshire County the healthiest community in the nation by 2020.

Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene is a nonprofit community hospital and clinic with a mission to lead our community to become the nation’s healthiest through our clinical and service excellence, collaboration, and compassion for every patient, every time. Founded by CMC/DHK, Healthy Monadnock 2020 is a community-wide health initiative designed to actively engage the citizens of Cheshire County in the process of becoming the nation’s healthiest community by 2020.
