To maintain the highest quality care possible, close to home and at the lowest cost, Porter Medical Center partners with hospitals, doctors, clinics and other health care organizations throughout our region.
The University of Vermont Health Network
The University of Vermont Health Network is a six-hospital, and home health & hospice, system designed to offer highly integrated health care across the communities of Vermont and northern New York. The hospitals in the network include:
- The University of Vermont Medical Center (Burlington, Vermont)
- Central Vermont Medical Center (Berlin, Vermont)
- Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital (Plattsburgh, New York)
- Elizabethtown Community Hospital (Elizabethtown, New York)
- Alice Hyde Medical Center (Malone, New York)
- Porter Medical Center (Middlebury, Vermont)
- The UVM Health Network—Home Health & Hospice
The network also includes the UVM Health Network Medical Group.
Porter Medical Center participates in Vermont’s statewide accountable care organization, OneCare Vermont. OneCare is working to transform the way health care is paid for and delivered by shifting from a model that rewards for more tests and services, to one that incentivizes value of care to the patient.
Porter Medical Center works collaboratively with local hospitals, rural clinics, providers and other health care organizations to offer high-quality care close to home. Through this integrated system of care, we work together to strengthen the services available to patients throughout Vermont, with coordination among providers and the streamlining of services.

Our doctors are helping to train the next generation of physicians and are constantly seeking new cures and treatments through research.
