MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Two New Hampshire hospitals are seeking public input on their plan to create a new regional health system.

Elliot Health System in Manchester and Southern New Hampshire Health in Nashua signed an agreement in October to create Solution Health, which officials say will boost efficiency and innovation while helping to control costs. While the agreement is being reviewed by the state attorney general’s office, the hospitals also are holding a pair of public hearings in January.

The first is set for Jan. 10 at Nashua High School North. The second will be held Jan. 18 at Derryfield Country Club in Manchester.
