About Wentworth-Douglass Hospital

Wentworth-Douglass Hospital was conceived as a 30 bed hospital on March 15, 1904 when the Dover City Council accepted "the receipt in trust of a legacy under the will of the late Arioch Wentworth" who gave "to the town of Dover, NH, for a hospital to be called the Wentworth", one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000). The hospital opened on August 30, 1906. The Wentworth Hospital consisted of three cottage-type buildings connected by corridors - the Men's Ward, Women's Ward and Nurse's Home and administrative building. All that remains today of the original buildings is a stone wall along Central Avenue. In 1982, Wentworth-Douglass Hospital became the first Seacoast hospital to be designated as a trauma center and that same year the hospital separated from the city and incorporated as a non-profit community hospital. Today, Wentworth-Douglass is licensed for 178 beds making it the largest acute care hospital in the Seacoast. The hospital strives to meet the medical needs of the community it serves, changing as times change. But just as in 1906, the patient is still the center of our timeless tradition of providing the best in compassionate and comprehensive care.
