The UVM Medical Center wants to buy the Fanny Allen campus in Colchester. The facility is currently owned by Covenant Health but leased by the hospital. UVMMC Monday announced they submitted a plan to the Green Mountain Care Board to buy the facility for $17.3 million. They say the campus is needed to ensure the continuity of care for thousands of patients. “The Fanny Allen is a critical piece of our plan to meet the health access needs of Vermonters over the next decade, and preserving uninterrupted access to the wide variety of services on the campus must be a top priority,” UVMMC President Stephen Leffler said in a statement. “We refuse to gamble on that future, and so we must move now to secure this essential asset that serves the health and wellbeing of our patients.” The hospital spent more than a year — and a lot of money — working to solve air quality issues at the facility over the past several years.
