LEBANON, N.H. (AP) - An affiliation between New Hampshire’s largest hospital and its nearest neighbor has won final approval from the attorney general’s office and is now in effect.

Both Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital are in Lebanon. The affiliation is the fourth such arrangement Dartmouth-Hitchcock has created with smaller hospitals. It previously affiliated with New London Hospital, Mount Ascutney Hospital in Windsor, Vermont, and Cheshire Medical Center in Keene.

Officials say the partnership will allow the facilities to combine their resources and better serve the community. The affiliation also will allow for some patients with less acute needs to be cared for at Alice Peck Day, allowing Dartmouth-Hitchcock to meet an increasing demand for beds for more complicated medical cases.
