Porter Medical Center may partner with UVM Health Network

Porter Medical Center in Middlebury, Vt., has chosen Burlington-based University of Vermont Health Network as a potential partner.

The board of Porter Medical Center has been engaged in a strategic planning process for more than a year to decide whether the hospital should remain independent or affiliate with a health system.

"It is abundantly clear that if we choose to partner, our best partnering option would be with the UVM Health Network," said Fred Kniffin, MD, CEO of Porter Medical Center. "This is now the only affiliation option that we are considering, should we decide to make that choice."

UVM Health Network was one of four organizations that responded to Porter Medical Center's affiliation request for proposals.
