NEWMARKET, N.H. (AP/WHDH) — A New Hampshire family doctor facing sexual assault charges is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
Newmarket police arrested 57-year-old Hugh Macdonald on seven counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault.
Officers took Macdonald into custody Friday at Wentworth Health Partners Great Bay Family Practice following a month-long investigation, police said.
Officials brought Macdonald, of Newfields, to Rockingham County Jail and ordered him held on $100,000 cash bail. He was bailed out Saturday, a jail representative said.
Hospital officials announced that Macdonald won’t be performing services at Wentworth-Douglass hospital or Wentworth Health Partners pending further developments.
“The safety and security of our patients remains our top priority,” a spokesperson for the hospital said. “We are cooperating fully with police.”
Macdonald is ordered to not contact the alleged victim. Efforts to reach Macdonald Saturday were unsuccessful.
