Serving the Community

For healthcare professionals who prefer to live in the community they serve, there are few better options than Northampton and the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts.

Life in the Pioneer Valley has been described as a perfect combination of the bucolic and the cosmopolitan, situated as close to cultural capitals like New York City and Boston as it is to the Vermont ski slopes and the Berkshire Mountains. Northampton and its surrounding towns* simmer with arts and culture, outdoor activities, breweries and vineyards, restaurants, shopping, and years worth of adventures for singles and families of every stripe. Area colleges and universities keep the community freshly stocked with ideas, cultural literacy and youthful enthusiasm, and contribute crucially to the Valley’s overall philosophy of diversity, acceptance and inclusion.

Our patients — often friends, neighbors and family members — value and support Cooley Dickinson and our employees. We feel privileged to help take good care of our communities in turn!
