Our ER staff cares for trauma patients, critical care patients, individuals involved in accidents, stroke victims, heart attack victims, those with broken bones, people requiring stitches, and sick children in the middle of the night.
Our staff is accustomed to handling a variety of serious situations. In fact, our ED handles life-threatening, critical care, and trauma on a regular basis (roughly 900 per year). We’re ready, well trained, and prepared to handle it all.
After an 18-month, $9.1 million renovation, our Emergency Department is now a bigger, brighter space with state-of-the-art imaging, testing technology, and rehabilitation services.
The University of Vermont Health Network’s highly specialized critical care transport service, serves patients who require transfer to advanced care at The University of Vermont Medical Center. This service includes a fleet of specially equipped ambulances and skilled personnel, and it’s available 24/7.
Should you need specialty trauma care, we are linked to the UVM Health Network in Burlington via its high-tech telemedicine capabilities. And our primary role is to provide initial, life-saving care that gives patients time to get to a trauma, heart, burn, or stroke center. Above all, we’re always here to help local residents and visitors of the area through any situation, 24 hours a day.
