Fletcher Allen Partners

A Message from our CEO, John R. Brumsted, MD

Dear Friends,

I’m pleased to announce Fletcher Allen Partners – our four-hospital network serving communities across Vermont and northern New York – is changing its name to The University of Vermont Health Network this fall.

Our network was created in October 2011 between Fletcher Allen Health Care and Central Vermont Medical Center. In January 2013, Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital in Plattsburgh and Elizabethtown Community Hospital in Elizabethtown, New York joined the affiliation. Our goal as a network is to provide high quality, cost-effective care as close to home as possible to the people of our region. 

In June 2014, the boards of the University of Vermont and Fletcher Allen Partners approved changing the name of the four-hospital network to the University of Vermont Health Network, and the name of Fletcher Allen Health Care to The University of Vermont Medical Center. CVPH Medical Center will adopt the name “Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital” and use that name together with “The University of Vermont Health Network” to express the affiliation in all communications. . Central Vermont Medical Center and Elizabethtown Community Hospital will also use their names with “The University of Vermont Health Network” in the same manner to express their affiliation in all communications.

In the coming weeks, we will be making corporate filings with the Vermont Secretary of State and obtaining necessary approvals from the New York State Education Department and the New York Department of Health.  

While our four hospital organizations have been working as a network for two years, we have not been describing ourselves that way.  Giving our network a unifying name that emphasizes our academic core is a great way to signal how we are working together to provide seamless, high-quality care to the people of our communities, no matter where you go for services within the network. 

I invite you to explore this page to learn more about our network and how we’re working together to serve you better.
