Former New Vision Student Returns to Finger Lakes Health
When Mynderse High School graduate Lisa Schmitter was a student in Geneva General Hospital’s New Vision Medical Career Program, she was struck by the tight-knit community in which she found herself. She enjoyed the personal attention she got from the doctors and nurses she spent time with as a New Vision student during rotations and shadowing opportunities.

After graduation, she went on to earn her RN-BSN degree from SUNY Brockport, and then spent the next four years working in palliative care and oncology in the Rochester area. It was in 2011 when the idea of small-town community drew her back to Geneva where she is now a registered nurse at the Finger Lakes Surgery Center, a Finger Lakes Health facility.

“It feels so good to serve this area and be able to give back to the community,” said Schmitter on her new position.

She also credits New Vision program director, Laura Van Niel, with making her decision to return to Geneva General an easy one. “Laura is awesome,” said Schmitter. “She is so excited about the good things happening in the hospital, that it makes you excited.”

The New Vision Medical Careers Program is an educational partnership with Wayne Finger Lakes Technical & Career Center and Finger Lakes Health. Now in its 16th year of offering outstanding high school seniors from surrounding districts a total immersion approach to education; the New Vision program integrates English, Health Science, Participation in Government and Economics into a curriculum where students meet daily at Geneva General Hospital.
