“Central Vermont Medical Center patients and employees have been asking for CVMC to open an urgent care center for many years,” stated CVMC President and CEO Judy Tartaglia. “The need for Express Care in Central Vermont was identified in 2009 and has been in our Strategic Plan ever since. Our community needs a lower cost, high quality and easily accessible alternative to an expensive Emergency Department.”
Express Care is designed for adults and children with minor illnesses or injuries. No appointment is needed and all insurances will be accepted. All Vermonters and visitors to Vermont will be welcome. On-site Lab and x-ray are available.
The clinic will be staffed with many of the same providers the community currently knows and respects.
CVMC Express Care Medical Director Richard Burgoyne, MD is a member of Waterbury Medical Associates and is board certified by the American Board of Family Physicians. He spent the year previous to joining CVMC as a general practitioner / primary emergency responder at Avon Medical Care Centre in Stratford, New Zealand.
Clinical Operations Supervisor Jeremy Orr, PA was born and raised in central Vermont. He worked most recently in CVMC’s Emergency Department and also brings experience from working at urgent care facilities.
Express Care is the safety net for primary care and will support improving access during non-traditional working hours (evenings & weekends). Express Care providers will use the same medical record as CVMC physician offices. They will be connected to your physician and have easy access to your medication list to insure quality care.
The CVMC Emergency Department at the Hospital remains open 24/7 every day of the year and remains the place to go for life-threatening conditions.
CVMC Express Care is open every day and every night 365 days a year from 12 noon to 8:00 p.m. Phone 802-371-4239.
Central Vermont Medical Center, along with Fletcher Allen Health Care, CVPH Medical Center and Elizabethtown Community Hospital, is a member of Fletcher Allen Partners, established to develop a more coordinated system of care throughout the region.
