Clinical Expertise — High Quality Patient Care and Leading-Edge Technology
"Our goal is to give our patients the tools to understand why they need to improve their health and their habits. We’ve had people come from across the country to visit our Medical Home and learn how our Community Care Team provides our patients with the support and information they need."
Jennifer Gilwee, M.D.
Assistant Professor of Medicine
Physician Lead of the Fletcher Allen
Vermont Blueprint Medical Home Pilot
Fletcher Allen is a comprehensive tertiary referral center providing advanced specialty care to a population of one million people throughout Vermont and Northern New York. Fletcher Allen is also a community hospital serving 160,000 residents and providing primary care services at ten Vermont sites.
"You can have influence here. Last year we were asked by the State to look at improving stroke care for all Vermonters. The ED directors came together to build a STEMI program. Now we’re getting better times than more urban places."
Stephen Leffler, M.D.
Professor of Surgery/Emergency Medicine, Chief Medical Officer
Our Medical Center Campus in Burlington is home to the only Level I trauma center in Vermont and to the Vermont Children’s Hospital, a full-service hospital within a hospital that includes a Level III neonatal intensive care unit. Fletcher Allen extends beyond its Medical Center Campus in Burlington to include more than 40 patient care sites and 100 outreach clinics, programs and services in the region. Our providers travel to community hospitals throughout our region to offer specialized services close to the patient’s home, working collaboratively within a growing integrated network of neighboring and affiliated hospitals.
Our university hospital offers state-of-the-art technology in numerous clinical areas. In radiology, we are both a beta test site and a luminary site for Philips Healthcare division, providing physicians and patients with access to the latest imaging technology, including an array of clinical MRI units and a 3 Tesla research magnet.
We also have a comprehensive clinical laboratory, bi-plane interventional radiology suites, and the latest in cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology facilities. Our newly opened radiation oncology facility features image-guided, radiation therapy-capable linear accelerators.
In 2010, Fletcher Allen completed implementation of a comprehensive electronic medical record across all of its inpatient and outpatient areas, placing us among the top three percent of hospitals nationwide in terms of connectivity. We are also one of the “greenest” hospitals in the country, recognized nationally for our commitment to environmentally responsible health care.
