PHWC serves all of Washington County and neighboring towns in Orange, Caledonia, and Lamoille Counties. The Clinic offers medical care, mental health services, body work, and oral health care. “Patti’s commitment to advancing provider partnerships and her patient- and family-centered care approach to her practice make her a wonderful fit for the Central Vermont Medical Center team. I look forward to working with Patti as we partner work with our community to advance population health in central Vermont,” said Anna T. Noonan, CVMC’s President and Chief Operating Officer. Dr. Fisher’s global volunteerism includes supporting the disaster response to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Irma with Heart to Heart International and ongoing medical support in Haiti. Here at home, she has performed physicals for Vermont farm workers in partnership with the Mexican Consulate, served as medical volunteer at 2016’s Special Olympics Summer Games, supported Vermont Homeless Health Care’s warming shelter, and served as co-chair of the VNA Respite House’s Physician Fundraising Committee. She plans similar community involvement in central Vermont. “As Chief Medical Officer Patti will provide leadership for our medical staff office functions and support acute care clinical operations,” Noonan added. “She’ll play an essential leadership role in guiding the development and implementation of medical policies, practices and clinical programs while collaborating with local leadership and partners across the UVM Health Network.” The Difference between Ordinary and Extraordinary •Cabinetry •Countertops •Plumbing •Tile 92 S.
