News & Updates

BURLINGTON, VT -- After hundreds of amazing applications over the past couple of months, the New York-Penn League's Vermont Lake Monsters are pleased to announce the nine kids named to the 2014 Little Lake Monsters Community All-Stars, brought to you by Northwestern Urgent Care.

Representatives of the Run for Jim recently presented Northwestern Medical Center with the proceeds from their 2014 walk/run event, totaling $8,000. Pictured left to right are Christina Latson, Social Worker; Jill Berry Bowen, NMC CEO; Shari Bashaw and Bill O’Connor.

The Vermont Lake Monsters and NMC’s newest practice, Northwestern Urgent Care, are teaming up to give nine kids a once-in-a- lifetime experience through a new community program called  the "Little Lake Monsters" Community All-Star Team. 

“This innovative new program supports NMC’s core values of health and wellness,” says Jonathan Billings, NMC’s Vice President of Planning and Community Relations. Vermont kids ages 5 to 12 can apply to become a Lake Monster for a day – submitting answers to questions focused on healthy lifestyles, community service and sportsmanship.

Quorum Health Resources (QHR) announced the winners of the 2014 Excellence in Leadership awards at its Annual Leadership Conference on June 4 in Nashville, Tenn.  Northwestern Medical Center (NMC) received two of the top honors.  NMC earned the award for Best Overall Performance among hospitals their size and CEO Jill Berry Bowen earned the QHR CEO of the Year award.

Philanthropy in healthcare has proven to be a powerful way for individuals, families, and businesses to make meaningful contributions towards the health of their community. It helps accelerate improvements to access, prevention, quality, and innovation faster than revenues alone can support. In doing so, philanthropy provides an opportunity to honor a loved one, express gratitude to a provider, or cement a legacy of involvement and caring.

To move this important work forward, Jeff Moreau has been hired to fill the newly-created role of Director of Development at Northwestern Medical Center.
