2022 by the Numbers

What a year! Southwestern Vermont Health Care is looking back at the biggest stories from the last year and tallying our successes. Here’s 2022 by the numbers.

Medical Staff
We welcomed 15 new providers in 2022 in such specialties as Cardiology, OB/GYN, Oncology, Orthopedics, Pulmonology, Surgery, and others. More than that, our physicians made great news by getting
important new certifications and taking aim at the Olympics games. We show no signs of slowing; more than 10 new providers are already planning to join us in the new year.

Like the medical staff, the nurses of SVMC had a great year. We topped the charts for
nurse satisfaction, launched the state’s one and only accredited nursing residency program, and earned a distinction  for shared governance, a powerful indication of just how empowered our nurses are. In addition, we gave nine DAISY awards and four DAISY team awards. Great work, nurses!

New Services in New Locations
Together, doctors, nurses, and others launched two new services. Most notably, SVMC launched an
Interventional Pain Management Service to help those with chronic pain. In the past, patients traveled up to an hour away for the same care. Now it is more convenient than ever.

We also brought weight loss surgery closer to local residents by forging a partnership with Capital Bariatrics of Albany, NY. On top of that, our Outpatient Therapy department expanded speech therapy to Northshire and Deerfield campuses and occupational therapy to Deerfield.

SVHC Foundation
Hundreds of donors contributed to record-breaking fundraising efforts in support of local health care. An astounding $450,000 was raised at the annual
Summer Gala. Over the last few years, the Foundation has raised $24 million to support the Vision 2020, A Decade of Transformation Capital Campaign for improved and expanded emergency and cancer care services. The total puts them just $1 million away from their $25 million goal.

The New Emergency Department
SVHC has put those funds to work making
a major transformation to our Emergency Department and main entrance. Dozens of construction workers showed up every weekday of the past year to carry out the thousands of tasks necessary to continue this important project. There are just 20 weeks before the scheduled completion of the first phase of the project.

In the final hours of 2022, Southwestern Vermont Health Care is grateful to its 1,300 staff members for all they do to fulfill our mission of exceptional care and comfort to the 75,000 people we serve. Happy New Year!
