Kingston – Dr. Catherine Agricola recently joined Health Quest Medical Practice as a primary care physician in the Kingston Plaza office, 334 Plaza Road, where she cares for adults and pediatric patients.
“I love practicing in the field of primary care because it gives me time to get to know my patients and listen to their concerns. I look forward to being that physician in the mid-Hudson Valley,” she said.
The Hurley resident is also responsible for the care of admitted patients as a new hospitalist at Rhinebeck’s Northern Dutchess Hospital, an affiliate of the nonprofit healthcare system Health Quest.
A native of Connecticut, she spent four years at the University of Rochester Medical Center in an internal medicine and pediatrics internship and residency.

She holds a doctorate of medicine from Yale University School of Medicine and a bachelor’s degree in music with a premedical concentration from Columbia University.
Preventive health advocacy is one of her passions. She was involved with the health resources nonprofit KidsThrive585 and on projects dealing with diabetes prevention and health literacy. She also plays the violin and performs at special events.
