STEVEN S. LARMON, MD was interested in science and mathematics from a young age, and always knew his path might include medicine. For the Greater Monadnock community, we are fortunate his calling proved to be oncology rather than organic chemistry. Although his career did not begin in Keene, his way here was paved during his medical residency at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and through the lasting relationships he formed with fellow physicians James Sise, Bill Moyle, Bill Chase and John Schlegelmilch. Upon relocating to Keene, Dr. Larmon played a pivotal role in the establishment of what is now Cheshire Medical Center’s Norris Cotton Cancer Center – Kingsbury Pavilion, serving as its medical director for nearly 25 years. Dr. Larmon also expanded cancer care in the region by taking over the oncology clinics at Brattleboro Memorial Hospital, Monadnock Community Hospital, and Springfield Hospital. He is beloved by the countless patients he treated for his kindness and deep compassion. In retirement he remains active within the community, embracing time spent with his wife, Jane, two chorale groups and other organizations, and as a newly-minted grandfather of three. We owe Dr. Larmon a debt of gratitude for his vision, commitment, and extraordinary care for others. Thank you, Steve!
GREGG TEWKSBURY believes that innovation and commitment are the keys to helping our community thrive. He has dedicated his career to ensuring our local community financial institutions remain strong and independent, previously serving as President of Savings Bank of Walpole, and currently as President and CEO of New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp. Gregg has also dedicated countless volunteer hours to strengthening health and human services in the Greater Monadnock region, including more than nine years spent as a member of Cheshire Medical Center’s Board of Trustees, two of which he served as its Chair. The support that he and his family received from Cheshire at a time of profound personal loss cemented Gregg’s commitment to helping preserve and expand healthcare for the community. In his role as a Cheshire Trustee, he helped guide the Medical Center’s affiliation with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health, as well as the major renovations made to the Emergency Department. Gregg’s vision and expertise have been invaluable to Cheshire, helping to set the Medical Center on a trajectory for future successful growth and guaranteeing exceptional care that is still close to home. We are profoundly grateful for his service to Cheshire and for always considering what will benefit our community. Thank you, Gregg!
