HCA New Hampshire hospital loses 12 physicians as interim CEO takes helm

Twelve of 14 primary care physicians on staff have left or are in the process of leaving practices affiliated with Frisbie Memorial Hospital, a 112-bed hospital in Rochester, N.H., according to Foster’s Daily Democrat.

The exodus, affecting five to six practices, comes after Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Healthcare completed its acquisition of the hospital in March 2020. It also comes as Matt Larkin takes the helm of Frisbie Memorial as interim CEO.

“Yes, this has happened, and we are working to assure we can support the hospital with local coverage while we are actively recruiting new staff,” Mr. Larkin told the Daily Democrat. “It is not a RIF [reduction in force]. Sometimes when an organization changes administration, we can see attrition. Those physicians who left are fantastic, and we hope as we reorganize some may come back.”
