Northfield, VT - On Monday, November 17, 2014 a number of dignitaries placed their ceremonial shovels in the ground, including Norwich University President Richard W. Schneider, University of Vermont Health Network-Central Vermont Medical Center President and CEO Judy Tartaglia, and Green Mountain Family Practice Medical Director Craig Sullivan, MD.

The new Green Mountain Family Practice building represents collaboration between Central Vermont Medical Center, Norwich University and E.F. Wall and Associates. The new building is located on the Norwich University campus, across from the Shaw Outdoor Center Building and just down the street from their current facility on Crescent Avenue. 

“Green Mountain Family Practice’s current building is bursting at the seams,” noted CVMC President and CEO Judy Tartaglia. “The new building allows more room for our primary care practitioners and will also allow us to have physical therapy on site and our orthopedics and sports medicine doctor, Mahlon Bradley, will have office hours here.”

“Norwich University and Green Mountain Family Practice enjoy a long standing relationship, working together to improve the health and well-being of our community,” Schneider said. “Norwich students, faculty and staff will receive high quality, professional care conveniently located within steps of our residential housing, student center and academic classrooms. The Northfield community will continue to have ready accessibility to medical professionals, and outstanding care cost-effectively, as close to patients’ homes as possible.”

Judy surprised Doctors Crowley and Sullivan by announcing that their names will be included in the name of the building in honor of the work they have done in providing health care to the community for many years.
