Starrwood Food Market

Posted on April 11, 2017 at 4:22 PM by Deb Hinchey

The “Team” met with Bobby Patel and Alan Richards, the new owners of this terrific supermarket on 1 Norwich Avenue.  They currently have 40 employees and many have been there for many years.  Many live locally.  If you look around the store, you will find wonderful vegetables and fruits, beautifully displayed.  All of you know that we should be eating many servings of vegetables and fruits.  So take a ride to Greeneville and stock up.  They take pride in their meat department, always fresh and many specials.

The owners wanted to make sure that we knew that they are dedicated to the neighborhoods that they serve.  They have made many changes to their grocery store, but one thing remains constant and that is terrific customer service and quality products.

The “Team” made a second visit to this great gym and fitness center.  We spoke with Henry Bowers and took a tour of the facility.  This is a terrific complex, geared to folks from teens to elders.  In fact, we had a chance to see the Silver Sneakers class dancing, a huge group of energetic folks.  Henry relates that the gym has 2,500 members and experiences high use.  The indoor soccer field is a key element to their growth.  Go soccer!  http://summitfitnessandsports.com/

River Valley Ambulatory Surgery Center

Posted on March 29, 2017 at 1:51 PM by Deb Hinchey

Our “Team” visited with Dan Sweatman, the Manager of Operations, Patricia LeDuc, the Business Office Manager and Michelle Drake, the Office Manager.  They spoke with pride in their facility, explaining that River Valley provides surgical procedures at one-third the cost of a regularly scheduled hospital surgery.

River Valley is a free standing, physician owned, multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center located at 45 Salem Turnpike.  It opened in 2014 and is affiliated with ProHealth CT, part of the United Health Group.  The key to their success is that they are “physician owned”.

“Our mission is to provide the highest quality of care to our patients through the evaluation of new techniques and technologies. We ensure that all staff conduct themselves with honesty and integrity while in compliance with all regulations and laws. River Valley ASC is dedicated to providing superior quality surgical care with concern and compassion to the needs of every patient.”
