Vail Valley Medical Center is committed to quality care and patient safety to assure organizational performance excellence. Quality care and safety initiatives distinguish our hospital and allow us to demonstrate our commitment to specific goals through measurable outcomes. Assuring the highest level of quality and safety is a hospital-wide effort and is transforming the patient care delivery model.
VVMC is proud to be a part of the Colorado Hospital Association (CHA) Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) for re-admissions. This initiative helps VVMC "re-engineer the hospital workflow process and improve inpatient and outpatient safety" through efforts that:
- Help patients return home as soon as they are able
- Help patients stay healthy at home after discharge from the hospital
- Avoid expensive re-admissions
The ultimate goals of the project are to keep patients healthy and to improve both patient and provider satisfaction.
