Why do you choose to live in New Hampshire?
I can agree with what all of our health care professionals say…we were drawn to the area because of the quality of life that NH has to offer.  NH consistently ranks highly for low crime rates, health, education, and low unemployment rates.  New Hampshire is a small state and we really appreciate that living in a central community here provides easy access within an hour drive to the seacoast, lakes region, white mountains, Vermont, Maine or Boston.  We are also fortunate to enjoy tax-free living with no state income or sales tax.  We thoroughly enjoy the culture and lifestyle here, the beautiful season changes, and the many recreational activities that NH offers year-round. 

What are the best cultural events that happen in New Hampshire? Why do people travel to New Hampshire? What is New Hampshire best known for?
Some of the things New Hampshire is well known for include maple production, pumpkin festivals, vacationing around “On Golden Pond”, whale watching at the Isle of Shoals, as well as hiking, biking and skiing the 48 mountain peaks over 4,000 feet in the Granite State. Take a sneak peek at www.visitnh.gov 

Why should a health professional choose New Hampshire?
We offer a variety of collaborative and comprehensive Patient-Centered Medical Homes with modern facilities, integrated electronic health records and engaged communities.

What loan repayment programs does New Hampshire have? 
Many of our opportunities qualify for NHSC loan repayment and we offer a very generous state program that incentivizes physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dentists and behavioral health professionals who work in either federally designated areas of the state, or with state-funded primary care and community mental health centers located throughout the state.

How is the J-1 Visa Waiver program utilized in New Hampshire?
New Hampshire’s J1 waiver program is administered through the Division of Public Health Services, Rural Health and Primary Care Section.  The Recruitment Center helps physicians seeking J1 waivers identify opportunities in New Hampshire that are eligible for visa sponsorship.  

Are healthcare professionals valued in New Hampshire?
Here’s what Ammonoosuc Community Health Center has to say: “We foster a climate of warmth, friendliness, and kindness. Here you’ll find a culture more of a big extended family than a typical business organization. We’ll support your ideas and encourage you to “think outside the box."

How is the weather/climate in New Hampshire?
New Hampshire offers four-season year-round beauty.  Maple trees are abundant here and provide a spectacular fall color display.  While our winters bring picturesque New England snowfall for every skier’s delight, we’re also equipped with reliable crews to keep the roads clear for safe passage.
