Vermont Business Magazine Central Vermont Medical Center (CVMC) has opened a second location in Waterbury Center to increase the community’s access to world-class orthopedic and sports medicine from our highly skilled doctors.

The new practice, located off VT-100N, near the Cabot Annex, opened on June 1. It provides an alternative to the Berlin location for residents in the Mad River Valley, Waterbury and Stowe and the surrounding areas. J.P. Begly, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at CVMC and a U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team Volunteer Physician, will care for patients at the facility. Sara Graves, MD, MS, also an orthopedic surgeon, is also offering care, along with Orthopedic Physician Assistant Helen Hollenbach, PA-C.

“We’re thrilled to offer a second location for our patients,” Dr. Begly said. “Sarah, Helen and I all have a keen interest in sports medicine, which we know will serve this active community well.” 

Dr. Begly joined the orthopedic team at CVMC from Vail’s Steadman Philippon Research Institute. There, he completed a one-year sports medicine fellowship focused on minimally invasive hip, knee and shoulder interventions. He attended Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and completed his residency at New York University Hospital for Joint Diseases – Orthopedic Surgery.

Dr. Graves specializes in minimally invasive endoscopic carpal tunnel release as well as knee and hip replacements. She attended the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine in Los Angeles and completed her Orthopedic Surgery Internship and Residency at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire.

“We are committed to providing the care our communities need, as close to home as possible,” said CVMC President and Chief Operating Officer Anna Noonan. “We believe this office is a critical part of achieving that goal, and we are proud to bring this type of world-class orthopedic and sports medicine to more of our communities.”
