BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Vermont's largest health care system is reducing the size of the board of trustees that governs its operation.
Fletcher Allen Partners, which oversees Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington, the Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin, Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital in Plattsburgh, N.Y., and Elizabethtown Community Hospital, in Elizabethtown, N.Y., announced Monday it will trim the number of trustees that oversee the operation of the Burlington-based system from 27 to 19.
Partners says the move will improve operational effectiveness.
Fifteen of the board members have been elected from the boards of the four affiliated hospitals. Two seats are held by the president of Fletcher Allen Partners and the dean of the University of Vermont College of Medicine. Two seats are vacant.
Fletcher Allen Partners was founded in January 2012.
