Hospital in Vt. wants single-bed rooms

BURLINGTON, Vt. — Fletcher Allen Health Care is beginning a process that could end up doing away with most shared patient rooms.

The planning director at the hospital, Vermont’s largest, said Monday that officials are planning to ask state health care regulators for permission to begin a process that could ­result in construction of 48 ­patient rooms in a new two-
story building. Preliminary estimates put the project cost at about $85 million.
