Berlin, Vt. – Effective April 1, Green Mountain Orthopaedic Surgery (GMOS) will join University of Vermont Health Network - CVMC Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. The integration will combine GMOS Orthopedic Surgeons Dr. Christian Bean and Dr. Christopher Meriam with CVMC Orthopedic Surgeons Dr. Mahlon Bradley and Dr. Sara Graves into one practice.
“The integration will give all general orthopedic patients the benefits of being part of a larger group, not only in terms of improved clinical and surgical access, but also through shared electronic medical records and consistent financial assistance,” said David Turner, CVMC Vice President of Physician Services. “It will also allow for a single point of entry through one shared phone line.”
For now, Green Mountain Orthopaedic Surgery’s location in Building A at the hospital will not change but the practice will have a new phone number - (802) 225-3970 - and name, University of Vermont Health Network - CVMC Orthopedics & Sports Medicine.
The merger is the first phase of a larger orthopedic clinical integration. This fall, all of the CVMC orthopedic practices and their services will move to a new home, centrally located at 1311 Barre-Montpelier Road. This combination of general orthopedic, spine and podiatry care, co-located with CVMC Rehabilitation Therapy and CVMC Wound Care, will create a comprehensive musculoskeletal center for the most optimal collaboration and coordination of care in the area.
