The Foundation is responsible for monitoring Portsmouth Regional Hospital in order to ensure that Seacoast citizens have access to quality medical care at a first-class facility and at competitive prices.
This has been an important part of the Foundation's mission since the Hospital was sold to Hospital Corporation of America in 1983. To fulfill this responsibility, the Foundation appoints a majority of the Portsmouth Regional Hospital Board of Trustees. The Hospital Board meets regularly with the Hospital's medical staff and executive management to oversee the Hospital's performance, including its financial condition, quality of care, quality of facilities and technology, and compliance with HCA's commitments under the 1983 agreement to provide free care to the medically indigent and ensure competitive pricing for its services.
