Governor Sununu, Elliot Hospital Welcome Department of Defense Team

Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu visited Elliot at Rivers Edge in Manchester as a team of active duty service members from the Department of Defense, composed of medics, nurses, administrative support, and a physician arrived. The team is set to remain at Elliot Hospital until the beginning of February.

“We are grateful to have this team here in New Hampshire, and we continue to press for all available resources as we combat this winter surge,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “As always, I want to say thank you to the nurses, doctors, and health care workers who have worked tirelessly throughout this pandemic. I would also like to thank our federal partners for working with us to make this resource available, which will help to open additional beds and provide flexibilities to our health care system.”
