Two doctors join Elizabethtown Community Hospital emergency departments
ELIZABETHTOWN — Elizabethtown Community Hospital, part of the University of Vermont Health Network, has welcomed two new emergency medicine physicians to its care team.
Dr. Mark Bisanzo joined the medical staff last fall and will work part-time between the hospital’s Elizabethtown and Ticonderoga campuses. Dr. Laura Mulvey joined the team in January and will work full-time at the Elizabethtown campus.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Dr. Bisanzo and Dr. Mulvey,” Elizabethtown Community Hospital Medical Director of Emergency Medicine and Chief Medical Officer Dr. David Clauss said in a news release. “They bring extensive and diverse experience in emergency medicine and are excellent additions to our care team.”
Bisanzo is an associate professor of emergency medicine at the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine and serves as head of quality assurance for the UVM Health Network’s newly formed Network Division of Emergency Medicine. He graduated from Harvard Medical School and completed emergency medicine residencies at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital, both in Boston. He was also a global health fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital.
“I am very happy to have joined the emergency medicine team at Elizabethtown Community Hospital,” Bisanzo said. “Having worked in large hospitals in major cities as well as hospitals in smaller rural communities, what I find rewarding is working clinically to serve a tight-knit community that takes pride in their local hospital. And I’ve found that here in Elizabethtown and Ticonderoga.”
Mulvey completed her medical training at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and completed an emergency medicine residency at Maimonides Medical Center. Prior to joining the Elizabethtown Community Hospital team, she practiced emergency medicine at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn and at UVM Health Network’s Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital in Plattsburgh. Her experience as a provider and patient at Maimonides Medical Center — an epicenter of last spring’s COVID-19 outbreak — was documented in Time Magazine’s special “Heroes of the Frontlines” issue.
“I have been living in the North Country for the last three years, and it is a privilege and honor to be able to take care of my community,” Mulvey said.
Elizabethtown Community Hospital operates two 24-hour emergency departments on its Elizabethtown and Ticonderoga campuses, treating more than 13,000 patients each year. In 2019, the hospital completed a $9.1 million update of the Ticonderoga campus, transforming the former Moses Ludington Hospital into a state-of-the-art 24-hour emergency department and outpatient center.
