- Medical University of South Carolina, Physician Assistant
Parrish A. Smith, PA-C comes to Rutland Regional’s Psychiatric Inpatient Services Unit (PSIU) from Greenville Children’s Hospital located in Greenville, SC. After visiting her brother’s Dairy Farm in Danby several years ago, Ms. Smith really liked the Vermont lifesytle. Although she had most recently been serving pediatric patients and their families, Ms. Smith earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, and therefore, the opportunity to work in PSIU was very appealing.
A graduate of the Master of Science Program in Physician Assistant Studies at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, Ms. Smith will assist the PSIU team with meeting the treatment needs of their patients. Her focus will be on the patients in the acute care unit.
Ms. Smith expressed, “The size of Rutland Regional is a plus for me coming from a very large hospital. Here it will be more intimate. I am very impressed with the team, and excited to work with them.”
