NORTH CONWAY — The N.H. Executive Council has unanimously voted to award a three-year, $36 million contract to Dartmouth-Hitchcock for psychiatric services to the state.

The vote came after two months of debate as the council raised questions about Dartmouth-Hitchcock's ability to appropriately staff the state psychiatric hospital following a labor dispute that led to 11 psychiatrists and nurse practitioners leaving the facility, reported the Union Leader.

This contract will help to provide staffing and administrative services.

"We are thankful that the Executive Council has responded favorably to DHHS Commissioner Meyers’ recommendation that the contract be awarded to D-H," said Dr. James N. Weinstein, CEO and President of Dartmouth-Hitchcock.
