Publications & Special Projects

Special Projects 

I am dedicated toward furthering the education of other students in their pursuit of nursing or nurse midwifery, acting as a preceptor throughout my career. Since my arrival at North Country HealthCare I have helped facilitate a partnership with Georgetown University School of Nursing and Health Studies that has enabled myself and other CNM’s in our department the mentorship, support and proficiency of several successful students.




Patient Satisfaction

We want to improve and you can help! After each visit you may receive a survey via mail or email. This is your opportunity to tell us what we did well and where we could use some improvement. We value your input and act on survey results on a regular basis. North Country HealthCare is committed to providing a quality experience to you and your family at each visit.

To ensure we are holding ourselves to the highest standards, we partner with an independent patient satisfaction company, Press Ganey. For nearly 30 years, Press Ganey’s mission has been to support healthcare providers in understanding and improving the entire patient experience. As a business partner to more than 20,000 healthcare organizations, Press Ganey leads the industry in transforming the patient experience and creating continuous, sustainable improvement.
