“I am pleased at the consistently high quality of the physicians we are able to recruit for CVMC,” said President and CEO Judy Tartaglia. Dr. Stinnett-Donnelly’s education, outstanding awards and other professional accomplishments make him a welcome addition to our hospitalist team.”
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. Stinnett-Donnelly, his wife Michelle and their two children Chloe, age two and Josh, 10 weeks old, currently live in Burlington.
“I like that CVMC is a medium sized hospital by Vermont standards. The medical center has a great personality and the staff is very engaged and friendly,” said Dr. Stinnett-Donnelly. He enjoys downhill and back country skiing and remarked “I am happy that CVMC is so close to Stowe where I have been a member of the Mount Mansfield Ski Patrol since before medical school.”
