North Country Healthcare - Androscoggin Valley Hospital, Berlin NH

Mission: Delivering the highest quality healthcare and experience for every patient, every day.

Vision: Working TOGETHER, we will be one of the top ten critical access hospitals in the Country, by providing the most compassionate, highest quality care to OUR community.

Values have been developed for all Androscoggin Valley Hospital team members to follow. These values establish specific behaviors that team members are required to practice while on duty. Compiled by team members themselves, these behaviors are demonstrated by AVH’s conscientious and caring workforce. By incorporating these values, we expect team members to be diligent about practicing them every work day.

At AVH, rooted in Ownership and Accountability, and nourished by Collaboration and Communication, we have the strength of our Integrity, which allows us to deliver with Flexibility, excellent Service, and Quality for our Community.

The leaves of this tree represent specific instances in which individuals or teams at AVH exhibited behavior consistent with these values. It is through these behaviors that our tree continues to grow.

Only through adhering to and “living” these Values will we achieve our Vision of being one of the top ten Critical Access Hospitals in the Country. ~Michael D. Peterson, FACHE, President of Androscoggin Valley Hospital
