The Heart and Science of Medicine
Working together to better serve our communities makes us stronger, focused on collaboration instead of competition. As a team, The University of Vermont Health Network improves the lives of our patients by delivering outstanding care cost-effectively, as close to patients’ homes as possible.
Our hospitals and physicians are bringing the best of community and academic medicine together, sharing their knowledge and resources to give patients access to leading-edge technology, advanced treatment options and the highest level of compassionate care – the heart and science of medicine.
Members include The University of Vermont Medical Center, formerly known as Fletcher Allen Health Care and affiliated with the University of Vermont Colleges of Medicine and Nursing and Health Sciences; Alice Hyde Medical Center, Central Vermont Medical Center; Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital, Elizabethtown Community Hospital, and Porter Medical Center. The University of Vermont Health Network cares for communities on both sides of Lake Champlain, from the Adirondacks to the Green Mountains and beyond.
Our network was created in October 2011 when Fletcher Allen in Burlington, Vermont, and Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin, Vermont, signed an affiliation agreement. In January 2013, New York partners Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital in Plattsburgh and Elizabethtown Community Hospital in Elizabethtown joined the affiliation. Alice Hyde Medical Center joined the network in May 2016. The network was originally called Fletcher Allen Partners.
The University of Vermont Health Network’s 19-member board of trustees is drawn from the membership of the organizations' current boards and medical staffs.
