Community Spreads Joy During Holiday Season!


This holiday season, our community has shown our health care heroes they are appreciated! Both Elliot Health System and Southern New Hampshire Health have received dozens of handwritten notes, thank you cards, words of encouragement, and yummy treats.

This year, they chose The Elliot’s front line staff. Many handwritten thank you cards with words of encouragement and gratitude were delivered, each with a token of their sincere appreciation. It is families like these that keep our staff’s spirits up as they weather the storm of the COVID-19 pandemic.
