Yampa Valley Medical Center receives awards

Yampa Valley Medical Center in Steamboat Springs has received three national patient satisfaction awards from Avatar International, an industry leader in health care improvement and patient satisfaction.

The first award was for “Exemplary Service – Overall Best Performer,” which the Yampa Valley Medical Center has earned for seven consecutive years. The second award, “Five-Star-Service,” is for emergency care. This is the third year the medical center received the honor. The last award, “Exceeding Patient Expectation,” is earned by about one-third of the hospitals on the database.

The awards are based on patient feedback, mostly relying on surveys sent out to patients after they have been to the hospital.
