Lighting The Way Honorees
Garrison Women's Health
Hope on Haven Hill is honoring Garrison Women's Health, a nonprofit that for the past 40 years has provided caring and compassionate healthcare for women from across Strafford County. They are being honored for their deep commitment to the community and for advocating through their leadership for quality, accessible healthcare for all women. Garrison's first physician, Dr. Hatch, partnered with Avis Goodwin to start a prenatal clinic for the Dover area. Since 1969, Garrison Women's Health has been a vital part of our community. Their nurses and physicians volunteer their time to provide educational seminars about women's health and donate to various charities. They have been very generous supporters of Hope on Haven Hill both lending their time, expertise, and financial support.
