ELIZABETHTOWN — Elizabethtown Community Hospital is welcoming Dr. Mary Glickman to its staff.
Glickman will be establishing her full-time family practice at the Elizabethtown Community Health Center. She will also be on-call for emergency situations at the hospital as part of the scheduled rotation with the hospital’s other physicians. She will be accepting patients beginning Monday.
Glickman, a native of Minerva, is excited about establishing her medical practice in the area.
“I’m looking forward to working in this small but bustling Adirondack community where we really get to know our neighbors,” she said. “I’m excited about becoming an integral part of the Elizabethtown health center and the hospital, using my training and expertise to assist families in our region.”
Glickman holds degrees in philosophy, public health and medicine. She brings a wide range of experiences to her position including time spent as a Peace Corps volunteer working in West Africa, working as a research assistant in the Psychology Department at the University of Arizona and experience working for various health-education organizations.
According to Hospital CEO Rod Boula, Glickman will be a welcome addition to the organization. “It’s important that our area residents have access to primary-care physicians close to home,” he said.
To help bring Glickman back to the area, Elizabethtown Community Hospital helped her secure funding from the Doctors Across New York program, which helps pay a physician’s medical school bills in exchange for the commitment to practice in a medically underserved area.
Glickman received a master’s degree in public health from The University of Arizona and received her medical degree from Pennsylvania State University. She completed her residency training at the Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Maine.
