BERLIN, Vt. - The Central Vermont Medical Center (CVMC) Express Care Center is now open.

A press release says Express Care is designed for adults and children with minor injuries to get care. No appointments are necessary and all insurance will be accepted. 

“Central Vermont Medical Center patients and employees have been asking for CVMC to open an urgent care center for many years,” stated CVMC President and CEO Judy Tartaglia.   “The need for Express Care in Central Vermont was identified in 2009 and has been in our Strategic Plan ever since.  Our community needs a lower cost, high quality and easily accessible alternative to an expensive Emergency Department.”

All Vermonters and visitors are welcome. The center also has an on-site lab and x-ray available. 

The CVMC Emergency Department will still remain open 24/7 everyday of the year.
