Care Site Description:
Platte Valley Medical Center (PVMC) is an excellent place to work with a proven success of hiring and retaining quality employees. In fact, the turnover rate among our associates is approximately half that of Denver metro area healthcare facilities. A Culture of Excellence and Care Platte Valley Medical Center is proud of our Planetree Designation which represents the highest level of evidence-based achievement in patient/person-centered care. All associates at Platte Valley commit to the Platte Valley Behavior Standards that help to sustain our culture of excellence. We recognize and value that one of our greatest strengths continues to derive from the friendships and alliances found throughout the Hospital.
As a smoke-free campus, Platte Valley Medical Center promotes the science that tobacco use is harmful to health and does so by leading by example, encouraging abstinence, and sponsoring stop-smoking education for the community. Tobacco and marijuana use by associates diminishes the hospital’s capacity to advocate for healthy living and sends a message counterproductive to the hospital’s mission and values.
Tobacco-Use Surcharge – To support associates and their families in taking charge of their health and ensuring the medical plans remain affordable for all associates and SCL Health, associates will pay a monthly surcharge if the associate and/or the associate’s adult dependents covered under our medical plans use or have used tobacco in the 6 months prior to completing the Tobacco-Use Status Affidavit.
