Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital is pleased to announce that Joshua Gleiner, Certified Physician Assistant, is working with the Hospitalist program as well as St. Johnsbury Health and Rehabilitation. Gleiner works four days per week, and divides his time between the two services.
Josh grew up in Rochester, NY, with both parents as doctors. His father is an internist and his mother is a retired pediatrician. Interested in the potential of a more flexible lifestyle, Josh chose to become a Physician Assistant. He graduated from Cornell University in 2001 with a BS in Biology, and Albany Medical College in 2007, with a Masters Degree of Sciences in Medicine as a Physician Assistant. “I really enjoy the whole process of helping people feel better; it’s very worthwhile and rewarding,” says Gleiner of his decision to go into medicine. Gleiner most recently worked in the Hospitalist Service at Gifford Medical Center in Randolph, VT.
Michael Rousse, MD, and Director of the Hospitalist Practice at NVRH as well as the Medical Director at St. Johnsbury Health and Rehabilitation says of Gleiner’s arrival, “We are very pleased to have Josh on our team. His past experience makes him a valuable and capable provider, and he’s great with the patients.”
Josh enjoys working with Dr. Rousse and the staff. “They’re a great group to work with. The teamwork is great, and it’s all for the best interest of the patients, which is what it should be.”
Josh and his wife Sky own Vermont Sports Magazine, which is published ten times per year. Sky is the Editor/Publisher, although they both write and photograph for the magazine, which is touted as “New England’s outdoor magazine.” Josh and Sky live in Orleans; in their spare time, they road and mountain bike, run on the Kingdom Trails, and ski both downhill and cross-country.
