At a gathering on Thursday evening, Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital formally thanked Peter Crosby, President/CEO of Passumpsic Savings Bank for his leadership of the Major Gifts Committee of the hospital's capital campaign. Standing next to Crosby (far left) are NVRH CEO Paul Bengtson and NVRH Board Chair, Susan Gallagher. Bengtson spoke about the important role that Crosby's leadership, wisdom and hard work played in the success of the campaign, the first major fundraising since the hospital opened in 1972. Crosby stressed the essential role that NVRH plays in the community: "certainly from a healthcare perspective, but it is also an important economic driver for the region. The strength of the hospital certainly helps when we are recruiting bankers to this area."
