Connie Cortez, Jay Humphrey and Amanda Spencer

Congratulations to the winners of our second-quarter Special Thanks And Recognition awards, which honor employees whose behaviors align with Yale New Haven Health's Standards of Professional Behavior. 


Connie Cortez, MA 
Northeast Medical Group 
Internal Medicine
325 Boston Post Road

“I am truly honored to be a S.T.A.R. Award recipient and so grateful to have been nominated for such an inspiring award. It is such a privilege to work alongside the wonderful men and women within my office. We always make sure we go above and beyond for our patients. It can be as simple as helping a patient who is struggling to get in contact with their pharmacy, or helping a patient make an appointment with a specialist. I feel that our patients should be taken care of and treated the way we would want our loved ones treated. It makes me very proud to work at NEMG and continue to care for my community." 

Jay Humphrey, PA-C

“I was given the opportunity to join Northeast Medical Group in 2014. Being a family practitioner is challenging, but the support of everyone at Northeast Medical Group Family Medicine - Guilford makes access and delivery of care to our community a reality. I am proud and honored to be part of the team.”

Amanda Spencer, practice supervisor

“It was an honor to lead the NEMG COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic in New London. I’m proud of my team who worked so hard to bring the clinic to fruition and offer vaccines throughout our community. It truly was a coordinated effort. It was a very rewarding experience to be part of this initial effort and provide this valuable service to members of our community.”
