Department of Anesthesiology

DHMC building

Welcome to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) Department of Anesthesiology. DHMC is a 400-bed, full-service, academic medical center located on our scenic campus in Lebanon, New Hampshire. Anesthesiology was established as a specialty at Dartmouth in 1941 and as an independent department in 1989. Our attending staff and our CRNAs are members of the faculty of the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College.

The DHMC Department of Anesthesiology offers a full range of clinical anesthesia, critical care, and pain medicine services to patients. Our trainees learn in a supportive and caring environment that supports intellectual development and emphasizes wellness and patient safety. We live in a friendly four-season community, known as the Upper Valley (of the Connecticut River), where natural beauty abounds and a wide range of outdoor activities are available.

The members of our department are talented, caring, smart, and deeply committed to patient safety and clinical quality. I am sincerely proud of our department and glad that you are visiting our web site. Please feel free to contact me or any of my colleagues if you have questions about our department or our programs. We look forward to hearing from you.
