Highest Quality Patient Care

Our Main Campus in Burlington is home to the only Level I trauma center in Vermont and to The University of Vermont Children’s Hospital, a full-service hospital within a hospital that includes a Level III neonatal intensive care unit. The University of Vermont Medical Center has been ranked among the top 20 academic medical centers by the University Health Systems Consortium (UHC) for quality of care and patient safety.

Our 11 primary care sites are all nationally certified patient-centered medical homes, making them the nerve center for coordination of patient care. This solid base of skilled providers, up-to-date technology, data-gathering capability, stagging levels and culture is the platform on which success in an accountable care environment will be constructed.

Our providers travel to community hospitals throughout our region to offer specialized services close to the patient's home, supplementing the growing integrated network of neighboring and affiliated hospitals that make up The University of Vermont Health Network. A growing number of UVM Medical Center physicians work along with their network colleagues in New York and Vermont communities to provide consistently high-quality care where it is needed. This integration continues to improve the quality of patient care and has resulted in significant cost savings
