Last Friday, the Vermont-based hospitals of the University of Vermont Health Network – Central Vermont Medical Center, Porter Hospital, and the University of Vermont Medical Center – submitted a collective fiscal year 2021 budget to the Green Mountain Care Board that charts a path to recovery, while meeting essential patient care needs and supporting employees with a slim, combined margin target of 2.2%.
Following guidance from the State of Vermont, Central Vermont Medical Center is scaling back some limitations on visitors to the hospital. CVMC and all other hospitals in the state began restricting visitation in March to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The Central Vermont Medical Center announced today that patients, visitors, and staff entering its main hospital will now have their body temperature read by a thermal imaging camera
Central Vermont continues to have a low prevalence of COVID-19. I would like to thank everyone who continues to adhere to social distancing, masking and other infection prevention recommendations from the Vermont Department of Health – these efforts have a significant impact on reducing the transmission of this virus.

Community prevalence of COVID-19 remains very low in Central Vermont. The last patient admitted to CVMC with COVID was 26 days ago. In the last two weeks, we have performed 1200 tests for COVID-19 and none have returned positive.
Starting on Monday, May 11, CVMC began seeing patients with time-sensitive care needs in our hospital and clinic practices. This is part of our measured, and carefully planned movement to a “new normal” in how we provide services, and is driven by data that suggest a significant drop of community prevalence of COVID-19 in Central Vermont
Thanks to your continued vigilance and adherence to the Governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order, we have collectively reduced the community prevalence of COVID-19 in Central Vermont
