New Porter Express Care Clinic
The new Porter Express Care Clinic of the UVM Health Network is opening in the Collins Building on the main Porter Medical Center campus in Middlebury. This new location includes a 5-bed clinic that offers convenient access to a variety of hospital support services. Services will include point of care lab tests and diagnostic tests including radiology exams, as well as common injuries such as sprains, strains and lacerations. The clinic will be open 7 days a week with all of the resources to streamline care for the community.
Dr. Amanda Young is the medical director for the new clinic and Dr. Fred Kniffin is the President of the UVM Health Network/Porter Medical Center (UVMHN-PMC). Support from the community for this project included a commitment of $75,000 from the PMC Auxiliary, a pledge of $15,000 from the Middlebury Lions Club and two anonymous donations totalling $100,000.
