Our UVM Health Network Intensive Care Unit Collaborative

Beginning in 2015, UVM Medical Center and CVMC teams collaborated through the Network to bring intensivist-level care and training to the Intensive Care Unit. 

“ICU care is a team effort including hospitalist physicians, nurses, nutritionists, respiratory therapists and physical therapists,” noted Dr. Allen. “Our goal is to provide intensivist support for hospitalists taking care of ICU patients here at CVMC,” said Dr. Allen. “This will be a collaborative process that will seek to provide more uniform care that conforms with national standards but also is properly matched to local resource capacities.”
