Our mission is to improve
the health and well-being of our community.
Since 1932, APD has been a non-profit, community-based health care organization with a mission to improve the health and well-being of our community.
A member of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health system, APD has a strong reputation for personalized attention and provides care to more than 15,000 patients per year. Long known for primary care, APD also specializes in short-stay ambulatory surgery and other health care specialties.
Today APD employs over 500 staff members. Our campus includes a 25-bed critical access hospital with inpatient care and emergency services, a 10-bed Surgical Short Stay unit, an outpatient Multi-Specialty Clinic, a state-of-the-art Sleep Health Center, and APD Lifecare—a non-profit senior living community with two facilities that support more than 150 residents in assisted and independent living.
Under the direction of APD’s President and CEO Susan Mooney, MD, MS, FACOG, the Board of Trustees completed a strategic plan in 2019 that serves as a guide for the next 3 to 5 years. The plan includes a commitment to our core values of partnership, kindness, community, and service.
Strategic goals of this plan include:
- Preserve and strengthen APD's unique culture of caring
- Positively impact the social determinants of health
- Expand and diversify our clinical services
- Ensure the long-term viability of APD
We are confident the plan will enable APD to continue providing personalized care to the community for many years to come. View the visual expression of our strategic plan in “Community Care.”
