Our Community Resources

Wellness Programs and Events
As part of our commitment to the community, we offer many classes and workshops that promote good nutrition, physical activity, and healthy lifestyle choices for Vermont adults, children, families and communities.
Volunteering is a great way to stay active and to give back to your community. At CVMC we have volunteers of all ages who contribute their time, talent and energy in a variety of ways throughout the organization.
The CVMC Auxiliary was created in 1968 when Heaton Hospital in Montpelier and Barre City Hospital came together to form one hospital now known as Central Vermont Medical Center. Since its inception, this exception volunteer group raised more than a million dollars for CVMC. While the organization was sunsetted, the Auxiliary’s legacy continues through CVMC’s scholarship program and other philanthropy. We are forever grateful to the CVMC Auxiliary for its contribution to CVMC’s mission.
CVMC Art Gallery
The CVMC Art Gallery, located in the main lobby of the hospital, provides local artists with an ideal opportunity for exposing their work to a broader range of our community.
Our Community Partners
