Possible Catholic Medical Center Merger with HCA Healthcare

September 28, 2023

Catholic Medical Center in Manchester may merge with HCA Healthcare which owns hospitals in Derry, Portsmouth, and Rochester.

CMC has signed a non-binding letter of intent to begin the process of a potential merger.

The medical center said joining HCA would enhance its long-term financial viability.

While it would no longer be a non-profit, a spokesperson said CMC would continue to operate as a Catholic hospital.
