Community National Bank Vice President and Commercial Lender Regan Howard and Assistant Vice President and Central Vermont Offices Manager Lorraine Brislin recently paid a visit to Central Vermont Medical Center (CVMC) to deliver the first payment of a three-year pledge totaling $10,000 to help fund the construction of an outdoor terrace for the Inpatient Psychiatric Unit.
For over 30 years, the Inpatient Psychiatric Unit at CVMC has provided care for individuals in central Vermont with emotional and mental health issues. The unit cares for an average of 462 patients a year. It is the only inpatient facility in the region that offers emergency, short-term stabilization and treatment for patients with acute and/or chronic psychiatric disorders.
CVMC’s psychiatric unit is the only inpatient facility in Vermont that does not have an outdoor space or access to fresh air for its patients. Daily access to fresh air and the outdoors plays a significant role in aiding recovery for patients by improving their mood and outlook on life.
CVMC is the primary health care provider for 66,000 people who live and work in central Vermont. They provide 24-hour emergency care, with a full spectrum of inpatient and outpatient services. CVMC includes Woodridge Rehabilitation and Nursing, the National Life Cancer Treatment Center and Medical Group Practices, with 121 physicians providing care from their private practices as well as from CVMC’s 17 community-based medical group practices.
