Concord Hospital

We are pleased to announce Secretary Shinseki’s decision to allow the expansion of acute inpatient contract care at Concord Hospital. This means that New Hampshire Veterans served by VAMC Manchester will now have improved local access to inpatient hospital care. 

The expansion of the inpatient contract meets the intent of the bills submitted by Senator Shaheen, SR 239, and Representative Shea-Porter, HR 190, to provide New Hampshire Veterans with the same level of care that the VA provides for Veterans in other states.

When an enrolled Veteran is referred for inpatient care by VAMC Manchester, care will be provided locally.

Currently, the Manchester VA refers approximately 35% of its acute inpatient admissions to the community.  With this change, we expect to increase the number of Veterans we refer to our community hospital partner from the current 35% to 70% of all acute inpatient care cases.

Patients will still be referred to Boston VAMC for specialized procedures such as elective orthopedic and cardiac cases.

In order to utilize the benefits that this decision confers to veterans, they must:

  • Be enrolled at VAMC Manchester
  • Be referred to Concord Hospital by a Manchester VA Clinical Unit such as Urgent Care (most referrals will be made through the Urgent Care Unit which is open 24 hours a day, every day)
  • Require acute care hospitalization as determined by a VA provider 

Veterans who elect to be hospitalized within the Veterans Healthcare System will be referred to Boston (West Roxbury VAMC) or the White River Junction VAMC.
