Elliot Hospital has deep roots in Manchester, New Hampshire.  The Hospital opened its doors to the community in 1890, ten years after receiving a bequest from Mary Elizabeth Elliot made in memory of her husband, Dr. John Seaver Elliot. 

Honoring our History: Connecting Our Past with Our Present and Future

The Elliot Hospital Associates History Committee is up and running. With gratitude for the enthusiastic support of the Elliot Hospital Executive Team, this group is excited about preserving and sharing the rich history of the Elliot Hospital and the Elliot Hospital Associates.

Statement of Purpose

Through stories, images, and artifacts, we connect the past of Elliot Health System and Elliot Associates with its present and future.


The current culture of Elliot Health System is shaped and enriched by the events of the past. This creates a meaningful, inspiring, and connective context for why we do what we do. Bringing forward relevant EHS history into current and future Elliot initiatives, services, and facilities serves as an integral bridge between past and future. Through this work, we honor and showcase our longstanding service and relationship with our community. We recognize those whose work continues to provide context, connection, and benefit to today’s services. By doing this, we honor the continuum of Elliot Health System.

Aim No. 1

Seek out, substantiate, preserve, and safeguard stories, images, and artifacts from Elliot Health System and Elliot Hospital Associates history.

Aim No. 2

Share our rich Elliot Health System and Elliot Associates history with our patients, staff, and the greater Manchester community.

Contributing to Our Success

Partnership with the Manchester Historic Association is a key component of our success. We look forward to working with this organization to research and share our stories, images, and artifacts. Through this effort, we engage with our staff, the patients we serve, and the broader Manchester community to preserve and celebrate the more than 130 years of history of Elliot Hospital.
