Spaulding Youth Center Welcomes Dr. Raymond Suarez to Board of Directors

Northfield – Spaulding Youth Center is pleased to announce Dr. Raymond Suarez has joined its board of directors.

Dr. Suarez is the Chief of Psychiatry at Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia, New Hampshire. He recently opened Lakes Regional Wellness, a private practice in downtown Laconia. Prior to starting his path to psychiatry, Dr. Suarez worked with children with special needs at the 92nd Street YMCA in New York City. His work at the YMCA inspired him to start a career in mental health.

“We are excited to welcome Dr. Raymond Suarez to our board of directors,” said Susan C. Ryan, President & CEO of Spaulding Youth Center. “His medical knowledge and extensive background in psychiatry, mental health and wellness is certain to be a welcome addition to our diverse board.”

Michael Ventura, Board Chair of Spaulding Youth Center, added, “Dr. Suarez has extensive professional expertise with mental health and wellness which will provide great value to Spaulding. We look forward to seeing how Dr Suarez’s experience will translate into ideas promoting good health and wellness for the children and families we serve.”

Dr. Suarez received his Board Certification from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in 2011. He received his Medical Degree in 2003 from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Yeshiva University before attending the Montefiore Medical Center, where he graduated from the Department of Psychiatry and was Chief Resident of Long-Term In-Patient Care at Bronx Psychiatric Center. He completed his postdoctoral fellowship in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation at the New York State Psychiatric Institute, located at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center.

The Spaulding Youth Center board of directors is comprised of volunteers from the human services, corporate, investment, and philanthropic sectors of our state. To learn more about the Spaulding Youth Center board of directors, visit
