MONTPELIER, Vt. — Vermont’s largest hospital is getting a new name designed to reflect its affiliation with the University of Vermont’s medical school.

Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington will become the University of Vermont Medical Center, beginning Wednesday.

Parent organization, Fletcher Allen Partners, will become known as The University of Vermont Health Network, and three affiliates will add “The University of Vermont Health Network” to their names. They are: Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin, the Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital in Plattsburgh, New York, and the Elizabethtown Community Hospital, also in upstate New York.

The network is designed to integrate health care in northern Vermont and upstate New York.

The hospital in Burlington, Vermont’s first, was founded in 1879 and named Mary Fletcher Hospital, after the mother of the woman who helped establish it. In 1967, it was renamed Medical Center Hospital of Vermont when it merged with Burlington’s Bishop DeGoesbriand Hospital.

The Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph founded Fanny Allen Hospital in Colchester in 1894.

Medical Center Hospital and Fanny Allen Hospital merged in 1995 and became Fletcher Allen Health Care.
