|Thank you for your interest in Gifford Medical Center. We are a non-profit community hospital with more than 100 years of experience in providing high-quality, accessible health care to central Vermont. Started by Dr. John Gifford in 1903, Gifford has changed considerably over the years, but in many ways has remained the same.|
We have added substantial technology, square footage and personnel since the early days. Gifford now has more than 500 employees at the main Randolph campus and our outlying family health centers and specialty clinics. We offer diagnostic technologies that include a 40-slice CT scanner, a mobile MRI unit, a filmless radiology system, digital mammography and stereotactic breast biopsies. Our 25-bed Critical Access Hospital with a rehabilitation unit and Birthing Center is recognized around the state. We have a 24-hour emergency department, a 30-bed nursing home with an extensive waiting list and numerous quality awards to its credit, a childcare center, an Adult Day Program and so much more. We’re extremely proud of those additions, our progressive can-do attitude, and our financial stability.
We also take pride in what we have retained from our modest beginnings. Just like Dr. Gifford, today’s medical providers place patient care first. Our providers, many of whom have been with us for decades, are committed to compassionately caring for patients, improving lives and bettering overall community health. We support the local community by purchasing locally grown produce for our patient and staff meals, we offer annual grants and scholarships, staff members donate countless hours to organizations and schools, and we invest in the local economy.
We are an organization truly committed to you, and we are thankful for the privilege of serving as your medical home. As always, we welcome your feedback and your visit. Please call us at (802) 728-7000 to learn more or schedule an appointment. You can also speak to our Board of Trustees about Gifford, as it is community members who govern the hospital. A list of our Board of Trustees – your neighbors and our leaders – follows.
Thank you again for your interest. I hope you enjoy your online glimpse of Gifford.
