Berlin, Vt –  Gaidys is a familiar name in central Vermont.  Dr. Gaidys is even more familiar. Dr. William Gaidys is a popular central Vermont pediatrician.  Dr. Rachel E. Gaidys is his daughter.  She recently joined Central Vermont Medical Center’s Hospitalist team. 

Dr. Rachel Gaidys, a graduate of Spaulding High School, attended Norwich University where she received her B.S. in Biology.  She earned her M.D. at the University of Vermont College of Medicine.  Her internship and residency were at Montana Family Medicine Residency based out of RiverStone Health, the Federally Qualified Community Health Center (FQHC) in Montana's largest city, Billings.

Dr. Gaidys spent six months in New Zealand  providing  primary care in rural communities through the New Zealand General Practice Network.  

Her most recent position was as a Hospitalist at Saint Vincent Healthcare in Billings.  Dr. Gaidys is Board Certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.

“I have always loved adult inpatient medicine,” Gaidys said.  “I wanted to come back to Vermont because of family.  CVMC is a really nice medium size hospital and I thought it was a good fit.”
