I’d like to announce important news about Poudre Valley Health System.
The health system was named this week as one of the nation’s 57 best-performing health system based on clinical quality, efficiency, patient satisfaction, and other measurements.
PVHS was the only health system in northern Colorado and one of only two in the state to be named on this prestigious list.
The Top 57 honor was announced by Modern Healthcare, the industry’s leading publication. The weekly magazine reported on a study by Thomson Reuters, an independent firm that tracks the quality of health care.
Thomson Reuters evaluated 285 health systems, which included a total of 1,944 hospitals. PVHS owns Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins and Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland.
The study identified the top 10 best performers and included an additional 47 health systems also considered best performers. PVHS was among the 47 health systems.
Recognition such as this demonstrates the way others in the healthcare industry view the high quality of services we provide.
In the last five years, PVHS has been recognized with more than 60 national awards and honors for our quality of care and performance. Top among the recognition was the 2008 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the nation’s most significant honor for best-performing organizations. PVHS was one of three organizations and the only healthcare system to receive the award that year.
I’d like to thank our 5,000 employees and the physicians on our medical staff for all of their work, expertise and caring. They are among the best in the world!
