Elliot CEO Doug Dean and SNHH CEO Mike Rose released the following joint statement:

“As we each continue to focus on reviewing all aspects of the proposed combination and work towards a Definitive Agreement, we are pleased to announce two public listening sessions. These are important opportunities for our organizations to receive public input, answer questions, and provide information on our strategy to create New Hampshire solutions for the healthcare challenges facing all of us through our proposed combination. We look forward to the conversation that lies ahead.”

Elliot and SNHH have created a website to provide public information, documents, plans and details on the proposed combination.
