Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Fletcher Allen Health Care is trying to raise its budget almost 5 percent -- adding an additional $44 million by next year.

Fletcher Allen wants to raise this money to pay for its expenses and new health reform initiatives.

It's also adding almost 300 full time positions and trying to construct a new building.

The hospital's president and CEO Dr. John Brumsted says the hospital is financing some changes that benefit the whole state.

Hearings for the budget are set for August 27 to 29.
