News & Updates

You may have noticed an increase in traffic on NMC’s campus this morning. We experienced the break of a natural gas line during construction on Crest Road that required temporarily shutting off gas to one of the Doctors Office Commons buildings. Thanks to quick response from both Vermont Gas and the St. Albans Town Fire Department, the issue was resolved and the gas line repaired shortly after noon. At this time, final measures are underway to restore full service to all offices. We appreciate the patience of the community as we continue the work on Crest Road which will improve parking and safety on campus.

St. Albans resident Helene Biggie was awarded this year’s NMC Community Service award at an Incorporator’s meeting at the hospital, Monday May 11.

On May 12, NMC will host a free community screening of an excerpt from the documentary: Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies followed by a panel discussion on the disease and its effects on our community.

The screening starts at 5:30 at the new State Office Building on Federal Street in St. Albans and is supported by the hospital’s Cancer Committee, which encourages a supportive care system for cancer patients.

Work is scheduled to begin this week on NMC’s project to relocate Crest Road which provides access to the hospital, Doctor’s Office Commons, and Cobblestone Health Commons. This project will provide greater access to parking in close proximity to the main entrance to the hospital, increase parking, improve pedestrian and traffic safety throughout campus, and improve the overall look and feel of the campus through lighting upgrades and landscaping.

Northwestern Medical Center earned a 10th consecutive Gold Standard Level Award from the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness & Sports and the Vermont Department of Health on March 25, 2015. NMC was one of 92 businesses that applied for this year’s awards and once again earned the top level Gold Level Award.

“I’m so pleased to be a part of a team that has a decade of exceptional worksite wellness programming under its belt,” said Suzanne Tremblay, Supervisor of Lifestyle Medicine at NMC.
