Hospital releases 2014 annual report

The board of directors for the Upper San Juan Health Service District voted last week to accept the 2014 Annual Report as presented by CEO Bradley Cochennet.

According to the 12-page document, “This annual report provides a high-level review of our 2014 accomplishments as well as a more detailed report on our quality and patient safety activities.”

The report begins with the hospital’s mission statement, vision statement and a list of values, as well as six key strategic areas. These include financial stability, strategic growth, community relationships, wellness, culture and talent, and quality care and patient safety.

A list of accomplishments for 2014 follows, and is broken down according to these six strategic areas.

Under financial stability, the hospital decreased its operating loss by more than $950,000 and increased gross patient revenues by 44 percent.

Under strategic growth, it implemented mammography and bone-density screening, added an ultrasound machine and improved the availability of MRI service from one half day to five days per week. It also hired a licensed professional counselor and an experienced, board-certified orthopedic surgeon.
