Bickford-Best Society

Honoring the Founders of Duffy Health Center

Judy and Arthur

Duffy Health Center hosts a giving society in honor of our co-founders, Arthur Bickford, MD and Judy Best, Nurse Practitioner. The Bickford-Best Society was established to recognize their generosity of spirit and concern for the well-being of all citizens of Cape Cod and to ensure that Cape Cod’s at-risk populations continue to receive the care they deserve.

“When we first worked together at the NOAH shelter, our primary goal was simple: to treat the clients we met with dignity and respect while caring for their unmet medical needs regardless of their ability to pay. We had no idea that our simple vision would develop into the daily philosophy of care at Duffy Health Center. Thanks to the dedicated staff at Duffy, our original model thrives to this day.
Dr. Bickford and I are proud to be recognized by Duffy Health Center through the Bickford-Best Society. Please consider joining the Bickford-Best Society to ensure that the Cape’s most vulnerable population receives the services that they deserve.” – With Gratitude, Judy Best-Lavigniac & Dr. Arthur Bickford
