Measures of Success
The 2016 annual report highlights how NVRH and its community partners move toward a community integrated healthcare system while continuing to improve the health of all the people we serve. We are using this three-part approach to meet our goals: Better Care (improving patients' experience of care), Healthy People (keeping people well, addressing behavioral risk factors, focusing on preventive care) and Smarter Spending (lowering the cost of care while improving quality). This is our pathway to a healthy community, and these are the measures of our work.
In collaboration with NVRH, our graphic design team at FLEK earned 3 GOLD medals in this year's national marketing healthcare awards. Two awards (Aster and Healthcare Marketing) went to the 2015 Annual Report titled Pieces of the Healthcare Puzzle. The other gold went to a series of newspaper ads titled Choose Wisely, Stay Healthy. Well done!

About the Area
Welcome to the Northeast Kingdom!
Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital is located in St. Johnsbury which is in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, a rural region known for unspoiled, agricultural landscapes and four seasons of outdoor recreation offerings including mountain biking, hiking, water sports, hunting, fishing, skiing, ice climbing, and snowmobiling. It is truly an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise!
The name, the Northeast Kingdom, was coined by former governor and U.S. senator, George Aiken, who declared the region so beautiful that it should be called a Kingdom. And thus, it has been referred to as the Northeast Kingdom for over 60 years. The NEK, as it is called by locals, borders New Hampshire and Canada. The area has 3 counties, a few larger, more populated towns (of about 3,000 – 8,000 people), and many small villages and communities with populations of less than 1,000 (a handful even have less than 100 residents!). This is a mountainous area with many glacially carved lakes to enjoy and even lakeside beaches for summer fun. Main roads are paved while backroads are most often dirt roads. There is no public transportation in this area so a vehicle is necessary for commuting or just to enjoy the many scenic drives. Sites along the way include rolling hillsides and farms as well as downtown or village areas with small shops and restaurants that take pride in offering locally produced foods. For those seeking a quieter, country life with time for family, community, and outdoor pursuits, this is an ideal place to call home.
St. Johnsbury is located just a quick drive from the nationally recognized Kingdom Trails mountain biking network as well as Burke Mountain Ski Resort and Burke Mountain Academy, which has produced many Olympic medalist skiers including Mikaela Shiffrin. St. J, as it is referred to by locals, is just about a three hour drive to Boston, MA, two hours to Montreal, Canada, and two hours to Burlington, VT where there is also an airport. St. J is a larger town with a population of about 7,000 and a downtown shopping area with coffee shops, small retail shops, artisan galleries, independent bookshops, a thriving farmers’ market, and more. St. J is known for many arts & culture offerings including the Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium, St. Johnsbury Athenaeum, and the Catamount Arts Center which hosts music performances, gallery exhibits from local artists, independent films and student film festivals.
St. J is also home to the nationally recognized St. Johnsbury Academy, a comprehensive independent secondary school serving local and international students, grades 9-12. Since the Academy serves both as a day and boarding school, it provides its students with a culturally rich experience academically, culturally, and athletically. There are many excellent school choices in the surrounding areas including Lyndon Institute which also serves as a day and boarding school for local and international high school students. Grade schools in the Northeast Kingdom offer smaller class sizes and a better teacher to student ratio than can be found in more populated parts of the country.

I have been working at Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital full-time (More than a year)
NVRH is a great place to work! The management cares about its employees and the community it serves. The people with whom I work are caring, dedicated, individuals who are motivated to give nothing less than 110%.
