Monadnock Community Hospital (MCH) was built from the generosity and dedication of community leaders who had a vision of opening a hospital in the rural Monadnock region. Selflessly, in 1919, Mr. Robert Parmelee donated his unoccupied summer home to help make this community’s vision a reality. On June 21, 1923, The Peterborough Hospital opened its doors to the public.

One hundred years later, the hospital, now known as MCH, is inviting the community for a centennial celebration on June 3, 2023 between 10am and 4pm on the Hospital’s Campus. 

MCH’s 100-year journey from 1923 to today has involved countless contributions from the community, many caregivers and clinicians, many great successes and achievements. To honor this journey and the century of support from the community, the Hospital is hosting a centennial anniversary celebration for all. The Bond Wellness Center parking lot will be filled to the brim for a day full of fun, food, music, health screenings, and activities for the whole family.

The community has supported Monadnock Community Hospital for the past 100 years and MCH would like to share the celebration with everyone. The Hospital is grateful to all the community members who have contributed to the success of the hospital since 1923.
