Art Simington, MD and Maich Garnder & Ed Tomey

Art Simington, MD

Art Simington, MD, always believed that his job as a pediatrician was first and foremost to be a teacher—to his young patients, to their families, and to other doctors at Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth Hitchcock-Keene and other institutions. After retiring from 28 years at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene, Art’s service of teaching did not end. He continued to inspire new generations of doctors as an Adjunct Professor of Pediatrics at Dartmouth Medical School. In addition to his work in the clinic and hospital, Art has served the area in several community health organizations, the UCC Church in Keene, and the Historical Society of Cheshire County. Please join us in honoring Art’s many years of caring for children and their families in the Monadnock Region and for his continued service in our community.

Ed Tomey & Maich Gardner

Maich Gardner and Ed Tomey have devoted much of their lives, professionally and as volunteers, to the nonprofit communities where they live, supporting vulnerable children, families, and the elderly. They moved to the Monadnock Region in the late 1970s, joined the faculty at Antioch University, and worked with a multitude of regional and state-wide nonprofits. In 2000, Cheshire Medical Center reached out to Maich and asked her to help create a doula program for our birth center. She managed the volunteer program to assist birthing mothers, and personally attended births too numerous to count. She retired in 2010, and her work lives on. Upon stepping down as Chair of Antioch’s Management Department, Ed helped the NH Charitable Foundation establish The Corporate Fund. For 16 years, he and Maich partnered to review more than 1,000 proposals from nonprofits seeking funds to strengthen their management and governance. Ed, meanwhile, consulted to some 150 nonprofits, including our Clinic and Medical Center, Monadnock Family Services, and the Endowment for Health. Today, they continue to volunteer, leaving lasting impressions on nonprofits and their clients. Please join us in celebrating the years of Maich and Ed’s commitment to our nonprofit community and the Medical Center.
