Berlin, Vt -- Colin McCreight M.D. has joined the Central Vermont Medical Center Hospitalist team. He worked for the past three and one half years at the Northern Navajo Medical Center in Shiprock, New Mexico. There he provided full-spectrum outpatient and inpatient care to pediatric and adult patients.
Dr. McCreight received his A.B. in Chemistry from Princeton University and his M.D. from the University of California – San Diego, School of Medicine. He completed his Internal Medicine – Pediatrics residency at Massachusetts General Hospital- Harvard Affiliated Medicine –Pediatrics Residency program.
“We are pleased to welcome Dr. McCreight to CVMC,” noted Judy Tartaglia, CVMC President and CEO. “He has a strong background in patient care with dual board certifications in internal medicine and pediatrics. I think our patients will find him a reassuring presence as well as a skilled clinician.”
Hospitalists can help patients achieve a smooth, speedy recovery by following up on tests and adjusting treatments throughout the day as necessary. Because they are devoted to only hospital patients, Hospitalists are often able to spend more time talking to patients and their loved ones about care. They also stay in close contact with a patient’s primary care physician.
Dr. McCreight, his wife Wendy and their 19 month old son Eli are happy to be on the east coast, closer to Wendy’s family in Boston and Philadelphia. “Wendy and I like the natural beauty and outdoor activities in central Vermont,” commented Dr. McCreight. He and his family have settled in Stowe.
“I like the size of this hospital. It’s more personal than an academic medical center,” he said. “I like the variety of patients in a hospital this size and the fact that there is an intensive care unit so we can keep seriously ill patients close to home and family.”
