NORTHFIELD, Vt. – The Norwich University Alumni Association (NUAA) in conjunction with the Career Services Center honored Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center as a Norwich “Employer of Distinction” at an event at its Hanover campus on Thursday, Dec. 18.

Norwich President Richard W. Schneider joined Chief Nursing Officer Gay Landstrom at a 9 a.m. ceremony at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center Fuller Boardroom.

“We recognize Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for not only providing Norwich alumni with opportunities to demonstrate the skills they learned at Norwich, but also for appreciating the values and ethics that Norwich alumni bring to the workplace,” Schneider said. “Of the many corporations Norwich’s Career Services Center works with, Dartmouth-Hitchcock has done an excellent job helping us prepare our students by providing information on the skills and competencies needed to succeed in the hiring process.”

The NUAA presents this award to employers across the country that recognize the value of hiring Norwich graduates for their operations. Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center attends Norwich career fairs and makes presentations to Norwich nursing students as well as offering internships and employment to Norwich students and graduates.

“We are honored to accept this recognition from Norwich University and its Alumni Association,” said John Malanowski, Chief Human Resources Officer at Dartmouth-Hitchcock.

“As an academic medical center serving New England, Dartmouth-Hitchcock is eager to work with educational institutions to prepare and nurture another generation of healthcare providers who are committed to providing high-quality, patient-centered care to this region,” Malanowski said.

The NUAA developed the “Hire Norwich First” program to strengthen ties with businesses that share and appreciate the values that Norwich alumni bring to the workplace, such as hard work, integrity and leadership.

The NUAA plans to recognize more of the largest employers of Norwich alumni at campus or regional club events.
