Longtime island residents Sean and Alli Mitchell have a growing family. Over the past two years, the Mitchells have welcomed two healthy boys to their family – Thomas and Patrick – who joined them and their three dogs under one roof. Sean, a member of the Nantucket Fire Department, and Alli, a property manager, have become well acquainted with Nantucket Cottage Hospital during this time.
“I wasn’t someone who used the hospital too much in the past,” Alli said. “But now? You’d have to pry me off this island to have a baby anywhere else!”
Beyond their experiences at The Birthplace, the Mitchells know that their family and the community they love depend on Nantucket Cottage Hospital in so many ways. From routine check-ups with their children’s primary care physician, to visits to the Emergency Department or the Walk-In Care Service, the hospital has given them the confidence to build their lives on Nantucket.

Every year, the Nantucket Cottage Hospital Foundation publishes its annual Report to Our Donors to celebrate, highlight, and thank our donors and volunteers. This report is filled with the names of people who recognize that life as we know it on Nantucket wouldn’t be the same without a hospital that meets the needs of a thriving year-round community. It’s one of the ways we acknowledge the hundreds of men, women and children who generously share with us their talents and treasures as volunteers, donors and staff. Read the full report.
As published in the March 2nd edition of The Inquirer and Mirror:
To the editor: I recently had surgery at Nantucket Cottage Hospital. I’d like to thank Dr. Monto and his entire staff (Jen, Meg, Tara and Keri) for easing my fear and pain and making me look on the brighter side of things. A truly awesome staff. I can’t speak highly enough of them. (more…)
Nantucket Cottage Hospital and Stop & Shop have entered into a temporary license agreement, allowing the hospital to use Stop & Shop’s land near its mid-island store for a staging area for construction of the new hospital at 57 Prospect Street. Stop & Shop has waived all fees in connection with the agreement, a benefit to the hospital valued at $1.2 million.
The parcel, known as the Craig Property, adjacent to the Boys & Girls Club and fronting on Sparks Avenue and Pleasant Street, will be used for staging for the hospital’s construction activities. Stop & Shop previously used the Craig Property as a staging area for construction of its new mid-island store. (more…)
A building permit has been issued by the Town of Nantucket for the construction of the island’s new hospital – a major milestone for this historic initiative. This permit is the result of an extensive review process and collaboration with the town’s Building Department, so we want to thank the staff of Planning & Land Use Services for its assistance.
