Meeting the Challenge of Healthcare Change

Like other hospitals and health systems across the country, we are changing how we deliver care to meet the goals of healthcare reform.  We have implemented many new programs and services and we are starting to see the results—we are providing better care, keeping our patients healthier, and lowering the cost of providing care. 

Today, we had a kick-off event to give employees an opportunity to share what they are doing to meet the challenge in their areas with our Community and Marketing team.  This information will be incorporated into the materials we will be sharing with our community.  We’ll be featuring our employees, physicians, volunteers and board members in our advertisements and on our website. 

We are proud of our accomplishments so far, and we want our patients and the community to know that we are changing to meet the goals of healthcare reform and to serve them for years to come.
