Congrats to Valley View

Congrats to Valley ViewDear Editor,Congratulations to Valley View Hospital. Last week Valley View Hospital received the Solucient 100 Top Hospital award for its ability to provide sustainable and reliable healthcare services to its patients and its community.Each year Solucient gathers publicly available information on over 6,000 acute-care hospitals and rates their performance. This analysis identifies new performance benchmarks. The hospital helped set new standards in “balanced organizational performance” in five major areas: clinical outcomes, patient safety, operational efficiency, financial results and service to the community. This 2004 award was achieved through the combined efforts of Gary Brewer, hospital CEO, his management staff, hospital employees, medical staff and the board.Only one other hospital in Colorado (Poudre Valley Hospital, Fort Collins) attained these benchmarks.Valley View’s mission is “a healthy community, one person at a time.” This award certainly reflects that the hospital is on target and is becoming a regional leader in total health care and service to the community.Mike FattorGlenwood Springs
