St. John's Hospital

Throughout its more than 135-year history St. John's has been fortunate to have strong leaders who recognize the hospital's impact, not only on patients and their families, but the community as well. These individuals, who volunteer their time, help St. John's administrative team make decisions to ensure the hospital always provides family-centered health care in a cost-effective manner.

Mission & Values 
"To reveal and embody Christ's healing love for all people through our high quality Franciscan health care ministry."  
Our mission's two facets -- business and spiritual -- help us redefine our purpose every day. The business side manages the realities of how to serve those that need our help, while the spiritual side focuses on the people who come to be healed. That spiritual focus sets us apart -- surfacing in the values we hold and our commitment to service.


Recognizing that every person, from time of conception, is a creature of God. 
As health care professionals, we see and treat people with injuries and ailments every day. It is important to remember that even though caring for patients is a regular occurrence for us, being cared for is not a regular occurrence for our patients. For them it is a new, and possibly, scary experience. We need to place ourselves in their shoes and show respect for them and how they are feeling. 
Terri Gustafson, Physical Therapist, Rehabilitation
Care embodies the concern, compassion, and sensitivity with which we care for patients as individuals on a one-to-one basis. It depicts our way of dealing with patients, clients, employees and co-workers. Many times it is thought of as a bedside behavior, but it also belongs in business offices, cafeterias and board rooms.
We learn from St. Francis of Assisi to love and care for all God’s creation. Care for me is about safety and comfort for our patients and their families. To be successful in caring for them, we must take good care of our work surroundings. Our co-workers also deserve care and respect. Our community also needs us to have a caring attitude toward its people and its animals. 
John Brown, Procedural Tech, Surgery  
Competence means that our work is performed and our hospital is managed with the highest level of skill and ability. We are committed to recruiting and developing people who are competent in their work and whose values reflect our own. Our values are an integral part of our hospital’s strategic plan, which provides the overall framework for local activities.
Competence is always putting 100% into everything you do. By showing that you are competent in your skills, you are respecting yourself and those around you. 
Amy Leverenz, RN, Pediatrics

Joy is the manner is which our staff members and all who join us in our ministry seek to perform their work — the internal fulfillment of caring for others. It is an essential ingredient in bringing a sense of hope to those who suffer.
It is a joy to work at St. John's Hospital where employees not only can acknowledge and thank our Creator, but we also are privileged to serve and protect His most precious creation: human life.

Central Vermont Medical Center - A Brief History

Montpelier's Heaton Hospital, founded in 1895, and Barre City Hospital, founded in 1907, merged in 1963 to form the Central Vermont Medical Center.

  • In 1895, Homer W. Heaton founded Heaton Hospital in Montpelier, Vermont's capital city.
  • In the neighboring town of Barre, Frank E. Langley and a group of community leaders organized in 1904 “to maintain a public hospital, not for profit, in the City of Barre.” Barre City Hospital opened three years later.
  • By 1960, there were only 37 physicians in Washington County, down from a high of 58 in 1885. The physicians of Barre and Montpelier, along with other community leaders, revived talks of merging the two hospitals as a way of preserving and expanding community-based medical care for central Vermonters.
  • By March of 1961, the Medical Staffs from Heaton Hospital and Barre City Hospital had voted to reciprocate staff privileges. This action was quickly followed by the State Health Commission's recommendation that the two hospitals merge to eliminate duplication and provide a broader range of health care services to its citizens. Less than six months later, the Medical Staff of Mayo Memorial Hospital, a small 29-bed hospital located 15 miles to the south voted to join in the merger discussions.
  • In 1963, Central Vermont Medical Center (CVMC) was incorporated. Five years and nearly $5.5 million later, construction was completed. The new 175-bed hospital combined the Boards of Directors and the Medical Staffs of Barre City Hospital and Heaton Hospital. Also integrated were Mayo Memorial Hospital's physicians and the local Osteopathic physicians.
  • In August 1968, CVH opened its doors on a beautiful 70-acre site in Berlin under the direction of Joel Walker, the former administrator of Barre City Hospital. Harold F. Shea, assumed the role of President, Board of Trustees of the Central Vermont Medical Center (CVMC), Parent Corporation to the hospital. Governor Philip Hoff and Vermont's senior US Senator, George D. Aiken, presided at the opening ceremonies, which were attended by hundreds of well-wishers. The festivities ran as the lead story in the localTimes-Argus on August 12, 1968.
  • The new hospital employed 395 local residents, making it one of the largest employers in the area. In its first year in operation, the hospital experienced an 83% occupancy rate and 949 births. CVH discharged 7,600 patients, saw over 9,000 people in the Emergency Room, provided over 288,000 hours of nursing care, conducted over 88,000 laboratory tests and extended more than $120,000 in charity care. The cost for a semi-private room was $40 a day.
  • In 1993, CVMC extended the commitment they had made in the 1970s to provide long-term care locally by opening Woodridge. This Nursing Home was built on the hospital's grounds to further ensure the availability of convenient, quality long-term care in a home-like environment.
  • State approval to undergo a major modernization and expansion program at CVMC was given approval in 2005. This project resulted in new and much needed Operating Room space and a New Birthing Center as well as reorganized space for the efficient delivery of the growing array of outpatient services. Construction was completed in2007.
  • CVMC broke ground on the new National Life Cancer Treatment Center in September 2008. After a year of construction, the new facility opened its doors to patients at the beginning of October 2009.
  • CVMC opened up its new Aquatic Wellness Center in January 2011, which has the only therapeutic temperature pool in central Vermont. Extensive renovations on theEmergency Department also began in the fall of 2010 and were completed in August 2011. Renovations included a new entrance and parking area, expansion of ambulance bays, as well as significant interior renovations and security enhancements.
  • Today, CVMC operates a hospital facility with 122 licensed beds, serves a population of 66,000, and employs nearly 1,400 people. More than 25,000 patients are seen annually in CVMC's Emergency Department and more than 164,000 outpatient treatments including over 3,000 outpatient surgeries are provided. The Medical Center boasts a medical staff of nearly 135 physicians and over 35 nurse practitioners, physician assistants and midwifes representing a wide range of primary and specialty services. Today, CVMC and its Medical Staff work in close collaboration with other health care providers in the region to maximize locally available health services.
To the credit of those who forged ahead with thoughts of merger in the face of skepticism, Central Vermont Medical Center continues to grow as a health care resource for the entire central Vermont community.

At CVMC we are continually trying to improve the way we provide care to the community. If you have a comment, a suggestion, a compliment or concern, please let us hear from you. You can use the form below or call our Community Relations Department at 802-371-4100.
