Porter Hospital CEO Visits Rotary

We had a great visit this morning from Dr. Fred Kniffin, the President/CEO of Porter Medical Center.
He told us about the issues and plans for Porter Hospital partnering with the UVM Network and the benefits it will bring to our area.
He says they may loose some autonomy but will have better buying power and receive some investments that make it well worth while. They are currently planning an open house so to speak in the May time frame.
