(AUGUST 16, 2023) For the third consecutive year, UVM Medical Center and UVM Health Network–Porter Medical Center have earned a 5-star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which announced its annual hospital ratings in late July, according to the Barre–Montpelier Times Argus.
