This is Where: Patients and Families Come to Heal

In June of 2016, the UVM Medical Center broke ground on a seven-floor, 180,000 square foot inpatient facility above the existing Emergency Department parking area. The new structure will offer four floors of single-occupancy rooms and a multitude of patient- and family-centered features all designed with a dual purpose: to help patients and families heal while moving the field of health care forward.

The new building will enhance the delivery of care and patient experiences throughout the hospital, offering technologies, efficiencies, and space for the benefit of all who work, train, and receive treatment.

Every Room Has a Story

There’s a meaningful story behind every gift. In the new Miller Building, grateful patients, community members, local businesses and UVM Medical Center clinicians, leaders and volunteers are naming rooms with their gifts – creating legacies, honoring caregivers, investing in tomorrow’s patients and families, and for some, furthering their own healing.

In the following videos, hear a few of these inspiring stories.


Donor Support Making the Difference

Donors are contributing at every level to help the Miller Building become a reality for our community. The lead gift was made by two long-time Vermont philanthropists, Bob and Holly Miller, whose generosity inspired the naming of the building in their honor. Read why the Millers believe in giving back.

Move Mountains Campaign  

As part of the collaborative Move Mountains: The Campaign for The University of Vermont, the medical center has set a $30 million fundraising goal to support construction of the new Robert E. & Holly D. Miller Building. 

Establish a legacy with your gift by naming a space within the facility. For more information, please contact Kevin McAteer, Chief Development Officer, Academic Health Sciences Development and Alumni Relations,, 802-656-4469.
