New specialty services expand options for southwestern Vermont
Rutland Regional Medical Center is expanding its clinical services in East Dorset with the addition of expanded orthopaedic services and women’s healthcare to its current ENT & Audiology services.
"By expanding our facilities in the Dorset Area we can offer the best of both worlds — the specialty expertise of our award-winning care and board-certified physicians, scaled to a friendly and convenient setting," said Tom Huebner, CEO and President of Rutland Regional Medical Center.
The East Dorset Medical facility allows Rutland Regional to bring a range of specialty services to area residents. ENT & Otolaryngology physicians Jennifer H. Judkins, MD and David R. Charnock, MD, FACS, will be joined by William A. Lighthart, MD and Deborah A. Henley, MD providing orthopaedic services; Mary M. Beerworth, MD, FACOG will provide obstetrics and gynecological services. Additional specialty providers for ENT & Otolaryngology includes: Physician Assistant, Kerry Finch; Nurse Practitioner, Patricia Schroeder; and Doctor of Audiology, Stephanie N. O’Flaherty.
"It is our goal to deliver exceptional care that people expect of our physicians at Rutland Regional," says Huebner. "The expansion of our East Dorset Medical Campus allows us to continue providing quality healthcare to our community."
The expanded campus located at 51 Tennis Way in East Dorset is open weekdays with the exception of Wednesday from 8am to 4:30pm by appointment. Appointments can be made by calling 802.362.4865.
