New Clinical Supervisor of Speech and Language Department at North Country Hospital
Freshout of college, Kate Schweitzer was hired in June of 2006 as a new speech and language pathologist at North Country Hospital. Little did she know six years later she’d be heading up the department.
Attending the welcome party for Coaticook’s new resident artists were (l. to r. front) Coatic’art president Bertrand Thibeault, resident artists Jean Pierre Gaudreau and Monique Juteau, Coatic’art members Koni Marcoux and Louise Guay and Coaticook mayor Bertrand Lamoureux. In the second row (l. to r.) are Coatic’art members Jean Beaudoin, Roger Vallerand and Marcel Alarie and Coaticook councillor Luc Marcoux.
Kate took over the helms of the department in early February when she accepted the position of the clinical supervisor.
“Not much will change in the department,” Kate said. “We’re going to continue to provide great patient care and work on keeping open communication with the other departments we work closely with.”
The clinical supervisor’s position came open earlier this year when Lisa Erwin Davidson, who, as North Country’s first speech and language pathologist, who built the department, stepped down so she could teach on a part-time basis at the University of Vermont. Lisa will continue to work part time at North Country. Kate Schweitzer, Speech & Language Pathologist, is the new Clinical Supervisor of speech and language at North Country Hospital.
