An Integrated System of Care that Puts the Patient First
At The University of Vermont Medical Center, we have a strong track record for delivering high-value care — meaning care that is high-quality and low-cost for our patients and accessible no matter where they are. Providing high-value care depends on a great degree of coordination among providers. We are working to create an integrated health system in our state and region by partnering with community hospitals and providers to streamline care.
