Catholic Medical Center in Manchester is partnering with Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a move designed to increase access to specialized services for residents of southern New Hampshire.
The hospitals announced the clinical affiliation Wednesday.
Officials with CMC say the move means its patients will have greater access to services for substance abuse, cardiac care, neuroscience, and stroke care.
The hospitals will remain independent, but will share resources, with doctors from Mass. General training physicians in New Hampshire, and CMC patients getting priority at Mass. General.
In a separate move, Mass. General is in the process of acquiring Wentworth-Douglass Hospital in Dover.
