Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate this year!
Carl S. DeMatteo, MD
Carl S. DeMatteo, MD, has dedicated his career to serving others in the Monadnock Region, New Hampshire, and around the country. Carl arrived in Keene at the Keene Clinic in 1985 as an Infectious Disease Specialist and General Internist. He was a co-founder of AIDS Services to the Monadnock Region. Serving as the President of the Keene Clinic in the 1990s, Carl played an intricate role in re-writing the by-laws in preparation for the sale of the Keene Clinic to the Hitchcock Clinic in Lebanon. After shepherding the process to success, Carl went on to work in several locations throughout the Dartmouth-Hitchcock system, and retired from his position as Chief Quality and Compliance Officer of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock System in 2011. Since his “retirement,” Carl has split his time between seeing patients in Keene and volunteering his time with Remote Area Medical, traveling to areas around the country, providing free medical care to low-income communities. Please join us in honoring Carl’s many years of caring for those residing in the Monadnock Region and for his continued service in our community and communities around the United States.
