The Next Community Healing Circle
Community Healing Circles have been created to help people process their losses , as a result of the pandemic ​and to identify actions we can take to uplift and support each other . We will meet on December 12 , from 3-5pm at The Arlington Common , 3938 VT Route 7A , on the site of the former Catholic Church , in the building in the back . $ 25 per person .
In safe space , we will reflect upon and share our answers to many questions . Some of them are : What have you lost as a result of the pandemic ? What have you learned about yourself ? What has become sacred to you ? What do you need to be able to heal ? Have you made any new commitments to yourself ?
To reserve your space , contact Teresa King at teresaking1 @ live . com or at : thelargerpicture . com
Please bring a journal , pen , an open heart and your mask , if you are not fully vaccinated . Future circles will be held January 9 and February 13 . More information can be found at : thelargerpicture . com

SVHC ER Renovation and Expansion Project
A $ 25.8 million project to renovate and expand the Emergency Department and Main Entrance of Southwestern Vermont Medical Center ( SVMC ), part of Southwestern Vermont Health Care ( SVHC ), requires a lot of coordination and communication . The health system has launched a website to facilitate sharing news and developments about the project directly with patients . The website is located at svhealthcare . org / EDRenovation .
The new website includes a project summary , photos and videos , illustrated designs of what the new Emergency Department will look like , a parking map , a project timeline , and recent updates . In addition to the website , SVHC will change directional signage and publish regular updates to the local media , social media , and its weekly email newsletter .
The changes will further enhance patient safety , infection prevention , and privacy . The project also includes an expansion to the Emergency Crisis Area for those experiencing mental health distress and increased telehealth connectivity with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health . Outside the Emergency Department , the project includes renovations of the Main Entrance and café , outpatient registration area , the Imaging Department waiting area , and the phlebotomy and laboratory upgrades .
