This past Saturday, the New London Historical Society hosted a special guest for area residents to honor his accomplishments. Dr. Donald Eberley, a general surgeon at New London Hospital held an open house at the historical society this weekend.
Over 100 patients, friends, and colleagues came to talk, give thanks to, and reflect with Eberly on his career at New London Hospital that started 35 years ago in 1980.
Dr Eberley, who received his MD from the University of Florida College of Medicine in 1975 and did his internship and residency at the Medical Center Hospital of Vermont in Burlington, will be retiring from New London Hospital on December 31 2015.
However, Dr. Eberley will still continue to use his surgical skills volunteering with the American College of Surgeons Operation Giving Back that helps patients in need of surgery all over the world.
He will be staying in New London, which he calls home.
