According to Medical Director, Dr. Mark Burke, the new Center enhances the cardiology team’s ability to focus first and foremost on caring for the individual and on providing efficient and timely services with improved access both for patients and providers.

“The Center for Cardiovascular Health is new model for care in our community,” says Marcy Rushford, Director of Radiology & Cardiology at BMH. “The team is working together not only in the Center, but across the organization and larger community to improve patient wellness and outcomes. We hope that inviting our community members in, they can learn more about the changing face of healthcare in Southeast Vermont.”

The Center is pleased to partner with the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center during this event by hosting an exhibit entitled, “Art for the Heart.” Curated by Mara Williams, the exhibit will feature area artists from the tri-state region surrounding Brattleboro. According to Dr. Burke, the art will add a welcoming and calming dimension to the suite.

Appetizers will be served courtesy of North End Butchers.
