I am writing to support the effort to build an outpatient ambulatory surgery center in Chittenden County. For our members, having a lower cost, high quality outpatient surgery option is something which makes sense and should be available.
Greg Marchildon, Executive Director, AARP-VT
We are convinced that an outpatient surgical option in Chittenden County would be an affordable and convenient option for the school district members of VEHI and their employees, for retirees in the Vermont State Teachers' Retirement System, and, more generally, for the people of Vermont.

Many of our physician members serve on multiple committees dedicated to reforming the current, unsustainable system. We have reviewed the evidence that supports the addition of a multi-specialty surgical center and are convinced that it will help Vermont with the changes necessary to achieve the desired transformation.

Growing our local business community is a high priority for the Town of Colchester and we believe Green Mountain Surgery Center will bring quality jobs to our community while being a civic minded business.
Kathi Walker O' Reilly, Director of Economic Development for Colchester, Vermont
We think the establishment of this center is good for our members, their families and for Vermonters, and is a common sense option that can provide both excellent care in a more cost effective setting.
