PLATTSBURGH, NY (05/17/2018) -- The University of Vermont Health Network – Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital (CVPH) announced today plans for a Summer Concert Series to benefit local, non-profit health care related organizations and The Foundation of CVPH.

“Our patients and community benefit from the partnerships between CVPH and these organizations,” explained Michelle LeBeau, President of CVPH and Alice Hyde Medical Center.  “The concert series celebrates our partnerships and what they mean for the health and wellness of our community.  They also provide us an opportunity to thank the community for its support.”

Hospice of the North Country is the featured community partner at the June 14 concert. 

The Dogfather Food Truck and Mr. Ding-a-Ling will provide food and refreshments at each concert.  A portion of their proceeds will be donated to partner agencies as well as The Foundation.

It is a privilege to partner with them on community based initiatives that help to maintain and improve upon our unique quality of life,” said John Bernardi, Chief Executive Officer of the United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc.
