25 Jul, 19 A Message from Dr. Kate McIntosh

It is with decidedly mixed emotions that I will be retiring from my practice effective July 31st, 2019. This has been a very difficult decision for me. I have been offered an opportunity to work with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont. This transition into administration, gives me a tremendous opportunity, but it is extremely hard to leave my patients behind after 15 years at Rainbow and 22 years of practice. Because it is so important to make sure that every patient and family receives the highest quality transition, I will continue to be at Rainbow on Fridays to teach, mentor, and to be available for consults as needed to ensure continuity of care. With my departure, Rainbow Pediatrics welcomes Gussie Belisle & Dayna Stimson, both board certified Nurse Practitioners, who will provide continued care for you. Rainbow Pediatrics remains both strong and innovative and is moving into an exciting new chapter which is bringing new opportunities for the practice and for our patients. It is very bittersweet to be transitioning out just as so many exciting things are happening, especially with all the fresh ideas and energy within the practice. I hope that you will enjoy the new developments as much as I think you will. I will miss seeing you, and watching you and your children grow and change, and I wish you all the best.
