How Your Gift Helps

A gift to Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC) is bigger than the health system itself-you are supporting the communities of Bennington and Windham Counties of Vermont, eastern Rensselaer and Washington Counties of New York, and northern Berkshire County in Massachusetts.

SVHC is a comprehensive, preeminent, rural health care system that provides exceptional, convenient, and affordable care to our patients and their families. SVMC includes 25 primary and specialty care practices and 11 TeleHealth services, that together serves 75,000 patients annually and employs 1,400 individuals. 

Our ongoing partnerships with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health and others are already enhancing the quality of care we provide and improving patient outcomes. Similarly, a continued focus on sustainability—including increasing patients’ access to care, enhancing efficiency, and continuing efforts toward patient satisfaction—is delivering noticeable returns. With these important efforts underway, we are now poised to focus on the transformation of two of our most important services: the Emergency Department and the Cancer Center.
