“My wife and I knew we wanted to live in a small town where there is a devotion to local agriculture. I entered Southwestern Vermont Medical Center and was amazed to see such a well-equipped emergency department. From fiber-optic intubation to the quality of the personnel, I recognized right away that SVMC offered something special. I found the hospital’s culture to be very supportive on all levels and the patient care to be superior.”

“I walk through the woods to get to work everyday. My wife, Amy, and sons, 4-year-old Charlie and 2-year-old Chase, love to walk over to visit. I don’t know where else I could find the first-class medical facility and quality of life that I have found here in Bennington.”
