This is an excellent week for news at Poudre Valley Health System!
On Monday, Thomson Reuters, the nation’s leading independent organization that annually evaluates the performance of 3,000 hospitals, named Poudre Valley Hospital as one of the 100 Top Hospitals in the U.S.
This is the seventh year since 2001 that PVH has been honored as a 100 Top Hospital.
I couldn’t be prouder of this accomplishment by PVH employees, volunteers and physicians. The accomplishment is due to their caring, compassion and commitment to quality.
In January, Thomson Reuters named Poudre Valley Health System as one of the nation’s top 15 healthcare system—a credit to all of our 5,300 employees and Poudre Valley Medical Group doctors in Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, Windsor, Steamboat Springs, and Sterling.
Whether our employees or medical staff members are a Greeley family practice doctor, a Fort Collins gynecologist, a nurse in Fort Collins bariatric surgery, a Loveland diabetes educator, or a housekeeper at MCR, a cook at PVH, a patient financial services representative on Harmony Campus—they all play important roles in our success.
The Thomas Reuters accolades support our opinion that the new health system—University of Colorado Health—under development by PVHS and the University of Colorado Hospital will be the best in the West, if not all of the nation.
The partnership has brought together the best in community medicine with the best in academic medicine.
The University of Colorado Hospital has the reputation as the nation’s top-performing academic hospital. The third University of Colorado Health hospital will be the Medical Center of the Rockies, Loveland, which has distinguished itself among the best in the U.S. in emergency care, patient satisfaction, and cardiac intensive care, and, like PVH, is a Magnet Hospital for Nursing Excellence.
Other news this week:
On April 17, we’re hosting a groundbreaking ceremony for our emergency and surgery center under development in Greeley’s North Village. The center will allow patients to be served close to their homes.
The center will open in November. The emergency services part of the center will house 10 examination rooms, two pediatric exam rooms, a resuscitation room and laboratory, diagnostic imaging, ultrasound, CT, and MRI.
The same-day surgery area will include three preparatory areas, two operating rooms, recovery areas, and an observation room.
I’d like to invite you to attend the ceremony. It begins at 12:30 p.m. on the southeast corner of 71st Avenue and 10th Street. Come and learn what the best in medicine has to offer.
As always, I’m anxious to hear from you…
