Location and Directions


I do not take medical care lightly particularly after very positive experiences at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston. In July 2016, I had my right hip replaced by Dr. Thomas Rock at Huggins Hospital; I would not use any other orthopedic surgeon in New Hampshire. The care I received at Huggins was extraordinary. There was ALWAYS someone available to answer a call. The staff checked upon me frequently. I was NEVER neglected and the staff was ALWAYS friendly. Food services are virtually the same as hotel room service. Food services are open for an extended period of time during the day. To place an order, merely call and it will be delivered within 15 minutes. I have NO complaints and only offer accolades. I saw a review made by a Vet. I respect veterans, but he failed to explain the precise nature of his complaints. Consequently, his review is virtually useless. Good to see a few reviews that have some substance. Not good to see reviews with spelling and grammatical errors. And, if any who wrote reviews failed to provide details of their complaints, then those are useless! I am adding to this as of July 13, 2018. In September, Dr. Thomas Rock is replacing my left knee and will at another future date, replace my right knee. Thus medical clearance is a necessity and the time window is small considering my prosthetic replacement is a personal knee requiring an MRI and fabrication. Tracey was able to schedule the entire clearance process in ONE day this week, except the MRI. The MRI is not scheduled until after clearance. I appeared at Huggins by 11 AM and visited Dr. Rock's office. All the necessary orders were waiting for me. Once registered, I went to the lab and the wait was short. From there I walked to imaging for a chest x-ray and there was NO wait. Imaging called EKG and I was received immediately. NO waiting again! I was early for my appointment with Dr. J Costello, but was able to complete a few form. Dr. Costello's nurse brought me in early and she was soon followed by Dr. Costello. Tracey called me the following day to inform me of medical clearance. This experience was outstanding; I have NO complaints. (a week ago)

My father was in severe pain and drove himself to Huggins in the middle of the night. He was admitted and treated for the pain. Had surgery the next day. He received personal and compassionate care from his doctor and nurses that took such fantastic care of him before I could come in from out of town. Nurse Dawn was an angel to him and so happy he had her. Her follow up after was exceptionally appreciated. Thank you Huggins Hospital. (3 months ago)

I have been using Huggins since 1986 when they first saved my life. Having moved north from Houston, Texas where I had been using the Texas Medical Center, I was a bit concerned about being rushed by ambulance to a rural hospital. They were truly amazing, working together so fast to get me breathing again. I spent 11 days there that trip. I have always been treated with the same courtesy I try to extend to the staff.

This past week my husband spent two nights at Huggins and his care, the food, the treatment and his room were all outstanding. From the time he was admitted until the discharge, the experience was excellent! He even had a visit from the therapy dog. Thanks to all the caregivers at Huggins for your professionalism and care for both of us! (10 months ago)

My wife fell and broke her foot. 911 brought her to Huggins emergency. Had some concerns whether to stay or transfer to Wentworth Douglas. We were so impressed with the Emergency Room Care and Dr. ROCK, we decided to stay. Great choice. Surgery went very well and follow up care is outstanding. Nurses during a 5 day stay was beyond description. Just Great. Could not be happier. We are very lucky to have this Hospital in town. VNA care so good. We are very thankful. (8 months ago)
