2012 Recognition Dinner -- 40 Years Serving The Community

Monday, July 16, 2012

Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital held its annual recognition dinner for employees on Thursday evening, June 28th at The Sherburne Base Lodge on Burke Mountain. People were recognized for years of service as well as certifications they earned over the past year. Paul Bengtson, CEO, was the Master of Ceremonies.  As usual, he hosted the evening with humor and warmth.  Approximately 150 people attended.  Said Bengtson, “I’m always pleased with this evening; we are deeply grateful for all that our employees and volunteers do to make NVRH the community hospital that it is.  2012 is the 40th anniversary of the hospital and we also celebrate 12 employees and volunteers who have been at the hospital for 40 years, which is exceptional.”
