Officials at Fletcher Allen Health Care of Burlington say they will seek state approval for a new $12.2 million computer system. The hospital said the new system would replace two others and would allow it to comply with healthcare standards. Last month, the state ordered the hospital to stop work on installation of $9 million computer system because it lacked approval.
The new computer system would be installed over a five-year period. Previously, the hospital paid a settlement to the state because it began construction on a $55 million parking garage without getting state approval. The hospital is in the midst of a $225 million redevelopment known as the “Renaissance Project.”
