Rutland Regional Reopens COVID Unit, 5 West Wing 

RUTLAND, VT – Rutland Regional Medical Center recently reopened 5 West as a dedicated negative pressure COVID Unit. This action was taken to accommodate and balance the needs of COVID positive patients and the high patient census in the ICU. 

COVID is still very much in our community,” said Rick Hildebrant, MD, Chief Medical Information Officer at Rutland Regional Medical Center. “We remain nimble and prepared to meet the needs of our community as COVID ebbs and flows during the pandemic.” 

The COVID-dedicated unit will be closed to all visitors. Currently, visitation elsewhere in the hospital remains unchanged.
