“We are here because we love this corner of Vermont and we marvel every day at the gift we are given to meet and care for and learn from our neighbors; to live out the cliché of caring for the children and grandchildren of our first pediatric patients; to know extended families and help them through bee stings, soccer injuries, illness, surgery and death. That is why we come to work. We forge those human connections by taking time to know our patients and so nurture a trust that then enables us to encourage them to work on lifestyle changes, receive immunizations, try medication, and to follow through on screening tests. Let us not lose sight of that as we work to meet various requirements for reimbursement. Our strength is in our work force: Providers, nurses and office staff, and in the time each of those people spend with our patients, from check-in to check-out. Yes, much in medicine has changed over the life of NCHC, but, at its core, medicine, especially primary care, is about human connections, and the trust that builds over our years of practice. Hopefully that will never change.” – Dr. Brendan Buckley, Primary Care Physician at Hardwick Area Health Center
“After spending my career working for vendors and government contractors, I felt the need to take a step closer to the patient. This was really brought home after I became a board member of the Foundation for International Missions (ffim.org) and co-leader of trips to Honduras to perform health screenings in rural villages. When I began my job search I focused on positions in rural and underserved areas, and Northern Counties Health Care, Inc. was a perfect fit for me. I really enjoyed talking with the leadership team, and the corporate philosophy is the same as mine. I grew up in West Virginia and when I came for my interview I was amazed at the similarities – same hills and mountains, flora and fauna (except for moose), and small towns.” – Stephen West-Fisher, Director of Information Services
