Leadership at the UVM Health Network

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 patient's  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. 

The University of Vermont Health Network cares for communities on both sides of Lake Champlain, from the Adirondacks to the Green Mountains and beyond. Members include:

  • The University of Vermont Medical Center, affiliated with The Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at The University of Vermont and The University of Vermont College of Nursing and Health Sciences
  • Alice Hyde Medical Center
  • Central Vermont Medical Center
  • Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital 
  • Elizabethtown Community Hospital
  • Porter Medical Center
  • UVM Health Network Home Health & Hospice (formerly the Visiting Nurse Association of Chittenden and Grand Isle Counties)

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 Alice Hyde Medical Center in Malone, Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital in Plattsburgh and Elizabethtown Community Hospital in Elizabethtown joined the affiliation. In May 2017 Porter Medical Center joined the affiliation. On January 1, 2018, the UVM Health Network Home Health & Hospice (formerly the VNA of Chittenden and Grand Isle Counties) joined the network. (The network was originally called Fletcher Allen Partners.)
