Officials at Desert View Hospital are touting their accomplishments over the past year as they look forward to 2015.
The hospital has published its Annual Report to the Community for 2014, which will be mailed to every address in Pahrump.
Further copies will also be offered at the campus.
Among some of the highlights contained in the report, the hospital received a 90 percent all round patient satisfaction rating.
“This past year has been full of successes and modifications for Desert View Hospital,” stated Kelly Adams, Chief Executive Officer at DVH. “It is with pleasure that we present some of our accomplishments in 2014.”
A single of the most notable alterations was in the hospital’s emergency division.
Moreover, Adams mentioned a new group of emergency room physicians arrived at the hospital in August, all of whom are board-certified in emergency medicine.
“That led to a reduction in the number of sufferers who left the department with no getting noticed, and allowed for a lot more efficiency throughout,” he mentioned. “It’s been a tremendous success.”
Other recent adjustments included the addition of two new major care physicians at Mountain Valley Physicians Group.
The hospital also saw an overall boost in solutions rendered to the neighborhood, like surgery, cardiology, mammography and in-patient volume.
Meagan Kowalski, Desert View’s advertising and marketing director, noted that further women’s services are also component of the boost in solutions supplied.
“Woman’s Wellness Association of Southern Nevada came out and partnered with us,” she mentioned. “They operate on Wednesdays out of our Mountain Valley Clinic. It clearly expanded these solutions in Pahrump given that it was restricted before then.”
There were also considerable clinical achievements in 2014, including critical care instruction for nursing staff.
Cardiopulmonary Manager John Foresee was named Rural Respiratory Therapist of the Year, and general patient satisfaction at Desert View Hospital enhanced to 90 %, according to Adams.
The report also served to briefly announce some of the hospital’s future plans, including the addition of a vascular surgeon.
This year, the hospital has plans to also expand its outpatient physical therapy services to an off-internet site location, and will add a second Mountain Valley Physicians Group clinic on Highway 160.
“We appear forward to continuing to boost our solutions for you in 2015,” Adams mentioned.
