Print More

Two Vermont hospitals that affiliated a year ago say they’ve been able to realize more than $1 million in cost savings in the first year of their partnership.

Fletcher Allen Partners, the parent corporation of Burlington’s Fletcher Allen Health Care and Berlin’s Central Vermont Medical Center, say they’ve been able to save money on purchasing supplies and on human resources.

Officials with the hospitals say they’ve been able to improve quality of care systems and share best practices in areas ranging from intensive care to infection prevention.

They say they think the efforts form a good foundation for future savings.
