This integrated health delivery system includes more than 1,000 physicians, more than 2,000 nurses and countless other health care professionals. Over the next several years, the UVM Health Network will carry out centralized activities for the benefit of patients of all the partner organizations, including:

Working Together While Preserving Unique Identities
Under the affiliation, the UVM Medical Center, Alice Hyde Medical Center, Central Vermont Medical Center, Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital, and Elizabethtown Community Hospital will remain separate free-standing hospitals with their own boards, management, workforce, licensure, medical staff (including credentialing and governance) and endowment. The medical staffs of each hospital will remain separate with separate credentialing and governance.
