Middlebury is a delightful New England college town with excellent dining and shopping options – and local entertainment too. The charming village green hosts regular events, and the bridge over the river – with a view of the waterfalls – is a natural place to pause, and inhale the good life. Join a community with a “buy-local” spirit, farm-to-table markets, a very low crime rate, and a true neighborly atmosphere! Their superb local schools boast small class sizes and dedicated teachers, graduating young people who are ready to succeed, whether in an Ivy League setting, or on a nearby organic dairy farm.
Middlebury College, one of the finest liberal arts colleges in the nation (founded in 1800), offers outstanding programs in athletics, foreign languages, and fine arts on a picturesque campus directly adjacent to the hospital. This esteemed institution enrolls students from all 50 states and more than 70 countries! Hospital employees enjoy college membership, giving you access to their athletic facilities and discounted performing arts event tickets too. It’s no surprise that the Princeton Review ranks Middlebury College a Top 20 school for “Best Quality of Life” – much of this is due to the town itself!
Enjoy life in a rural, yet sophisticated, community – and join a professional team in the hospital that is committed to both family and individual personal development. Middlebury offers spectacular views of the Green Mountains, with great local snow skiing and snowboarding, and easy access to major resorts like Killington, just an hour away. The warmer seasons offer challenging golf, hiking, cycling, sailing, boating, fishing, hunting, and adventures of every other sort – with breathtaking scenery all around. The “Trail Around Middlebury” is a 16-mile footpath circling the town, and a favorite of walkers, runners, cross-country skiers and snowshoe enthusiasts. Bikers enjoy many options for mountain and trail riding, while local waterways invite kayakers to try still- or white-water. Try birdwatching or nature photography, if you prefer – with plenty of prospects!
Middlebury sits between Burlington (Vermont’s largest city, with over 200,000 people) and Rutland (under an hour from each), with the Adirondacks to the west, and the Green Mountains to the east. Albany NY is a two hour drive; Manchester NH (largest city in northern New England) and Montreal (second largest city in Canada) are each 2 ½ hours away.
