“We are excited and grateful to have Dr. Menia join our Inter-Lakes family,” said Chip Holmes, Inter-Lakes Health president and CEO. “This is about raising the bar for emergency care in our greater Ticonderoga service area and another example of the benefits that our partnership with Fletcher Allen Health Care is bringing to our shared service area and community.”

“We are truly fortunate to have a region-leading emergency services team comprised of hospital staff and physicians,” Holmes said. “We are especially thankful to Dr. Glen Chapman who has been serving as the interim medical director of our emergency department. Dr. Menia’s leadership, in coordination with Dr. Ray Keller at Fletcher Allen, will promote the strengthening of our emergency services ultimately to the benefit of our patients and their families.”
