At University of Vermont Health Network – Central Vermont Medical Center our rehabilitation therapy department is committed to providing the best possible care, close to home. Our highly trained and qualified therapists are dedicated to helping people maximize their quality of life while improving or restoring their physical strength, mobility and cognition.
Our people are great at what they do and the numbers show it!

Same or Next Day Access
Rehabilitation patients report ease in scheduling appointments for their initial evaluation. Our goal is to see people within two days at our main rehabilitation facility located on the Barre-Montpelier Road in Berlin. We have hired additional staff and now have same day and next day appointments available there on a consistent basis. At our satellite locations we strive to see patients within a five-day window and have been able to consistently maintain this access.
