Two weeks until graduation! Even though this year's graduation ceremonies will not be traditional, we still want to thank these chiefs for all of their hard work and dedication they have provided to our patients, community and hospital over the last five years! We have had ice storms, tropical storms, (one of the worst hurricanes our area has experienced in a number of years) and a pandemic. They are definitely prepared to handle anything! We are going to miss you!

Surgery Residency group helped work on a Habitat for Humanity House.


We here at NHRMC, share our condolences with Greenville Memorial Hospital in SC, as they have lost their Residency Administrator of many years, Ms. Darlene Norton. Darlene was passionate about her work and loved her residents as if they were her own children. She was a past president of the Association of Residency Administrators in Surgery and a steadfast and articulate advocate. She will be be surely missed by her family at Greenville Memorial Hospital and the rest of the surgical education community.
