Brattleboro Memorial Hospital announces that the Bellows Falls practice of Cornerstone Pediatrics is moving in early April to newly renovated offices at 22 Bridge Street. In the building formerly known as the Framery, the new office location, which is currently being renovated, will feature the same courteous and friendly staff to meet the needs of all their patients and families.
Later in the spring, Cornerstone will hold an open house to welcome visitors and show off their new offices. Meanwhile, pediatricians Susan Slowinski, MD, and Valery Rooney, MD, and the rest of the office staff look forward to welcoming existing and new patients to their new location. For more information about the new office, or to make an appointment, call 463-2020.
Cornerstone Pediatrics also offers a program called "Reach Out and Read", started by a team of pediatricians and early childhood educators in Boston who are interested in encouraging early literacy as part of pediatric care. The national program offers books to children from age six months to five years, but thanks to the generosity of Phi Theta Kappa at Landmark College, the "Reach Out and Read" program at Cornerstone Pediatrics in Bellows Falls is able to give a free age-appropriate book to each child from age six months on through high school to take home when they come to Cornerstone Pediatrics for their well-child visit.
In addition, Cornerstone Pediatrics offers a free lending library for parents which features books about parenting. It is open to the public in addition to being available for the practice's patients.
Drs. Rooney and Slowinski are both board certified pediatricians and fellows in the American Academy of Pediatrics.
