The University of Vermont Health Network – Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital is a private, non-profit, NYS designation level II trauma center serving a tri-county area of 170,000 in northeastern New York. CVPH is a regional tertiary center that offers high technology and is JCAHO accredited. It is one of eight state-designated Regional Resource Centers for Emergency Management. Of significance is that we are in the process of earning American College of Surgeons Verification as a Level III Trauma Center. CVPH is recognized by Healthgrades as a Top 100 Hospital for Cardiac Care.
Our typical daily census is approximately 284 (approximately 170 acute beds) with 165 physicians on the Medical Staff. Our sub-specialty support is very good. In 2014 CVPH had 10,220 admissions, 96,360 patient days, 1,095 births, 51,100 emergency room visits and 22,265 surgical procedures. We are one of the few New York hospitals that typically operate in the black. We are much bigger than what you would expect in a rural area.
The services offered here are advanced and our technology vast. Our state of the art critical care unit has 14-beds, the Progressive Care Unit has 12 beds and our three cath labs have digital equipment. We have newly constructed OR’s (9), Emergency Care Center, main lobby and patient registration areas. The cardiovascular short-stay unit includes 9 rooms for post-procedure and cardiac access patients. Our Ambulatory Surgery Center has 4 OR’s and 4 endoscopy suites. Our newest Medical Arts Building houses a state of the art laboratory, pharmacy, outpatient cardiology services, and physician office space. Exciting news on the horizon is that the NYS Department of Health has approved our plan to establish the Northern New York Center of Cardiac Excellence. The centerpiece of the program will be our angioplasty and EP services which has gained much recognition for its quality outcomes and increased volumes.New York
