Middle Park Medical Center adds partners
With the mountain leaves finally emerging from their six-month hibernation, I welcome you to the beauty of summer in Grand County.
Middle Park Medical Center (MPMC) is well positioned to meet your health care needs. If you encounter any muscle or join issues, (shoulder/knees….), we are proud to partner with Dr. Meininger and Dr. Bomberg who provide orthopedics surgery from Steamboat. In addition, if your hiking, biking or off-road activities leave you in need of foot care, Dr. Paden and Dr. Kruse are our outstanding podiatrists from Denver.
In the coming months, MPMC plans to expand its specialty services including an additional 3-4 days per month of Cardiology in Granby and Kremmling.
As many of you are aware, MPMC had a complaint filed for receivership by our bondholders in March. Our hospital leadership and attorneys are currently pursuing opportunities to partner with the bondholders to avoid the hearing. We are also working with the USDA to restructure our bonds and allow the current bondholders to be made whole in their investment and decrease our annual bond payments. We are cautiously optimistic that this receivership process will ultimately be resolved without adverse impact upon MPMC.
During the past month, I completed Community Town Hall meetings in Granby and Kremmling to “reach out” to local residents. We appreciate the input by those that joined us and look forward to seeing more in the future. My goal is to engage each community and identify specific areas where MPMC has performed well, and to identify opportunities for improvement.
I plan to schedule these informal meetings on a regular basis to provide a forum for me to develop a relationship with Grand, Jackson, and northern Summit County residents. We truly want our communities to believe that “MPMC CARES!”
May 10-17 was national Hospital Week. MPMC celebrated with our outstanding employees through a hospital-wide cookout (with leadership taking a monumental risk by barbecuing!), cowboy day, a pie throwing contest and more. MPMC is so fortunate to have employees who truly care about their patients and community. Hospital Week is an opportunity for leadership to say THANK YOU for all you do!
