"Learning to work together to provide the very best care
to our patients in a great environment for our people."



Building a network from the ground up offers us both opportunities and challenges. How can we make this the best health care network it can be, both for our patients and for us? We have a lot of work to do, decisions to make, problems to solve - and endless opportunities to explore creative solutions.

This effort requires the unique strengths and talents of all our people, working together. Building connections will help us provide services that result in healthier, happier communities both inside and outside our walls. We hope you will lend your voice and vision to this first summit as we explore our future, and that you will be an active and optimistic participant in our network's creation. 


Who Should Attend

  • UVM Health Network Medical Group Physicians, Advanced Practice Providers and administrators.
  • UVM Health Network leaders.
  • Independent physicians and health care leaders in Vermont and Northern New York.


What We Will Do

  • Build relationships and discuss how we can work together to benefit our patients and communities.
  • Understand the strengths that we each bring to the table and how we can best leverage them.
  • Define what it would take to be the best rural academic health care system in the country.
