The Beat - Week 41
Quote of the Day
"It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." - -J. K Rowling
According to the clock, the first areas to experience a new day and a New Year are islands that use UTC+14, the Line Islands, and in the southern summer also Samoa. The first major city is Auckland, New Zealand. The areas that are the first to see the daylight of a new day vary by the season.

Primary Care Specialists - Pocatello
Primary Care Specialists in Pocatello proudly showed off their style of "Navy Blue" while getting wet, muddy, and sweaty in this year's annual ISU Ambush! The ISU Ambush is a 5k mud run that includes tons of obstacles, hills, water pits and of course... mud. Two teams of 7 trotted the course with more team flare and uniformity than you could shake a stick at. In fact, their team spirit got enough attention to warrant a photo in the on-campus newspaper. It goes without saying that the entire PCS Team had fun and spent some excellent time getting to know each other outside of the clinic.
Inside the clinic, Primary Care Specialist is a bolstering location that provides everything from Primary Care, Chronic Care Management, and Urgent Care. Dr. Maynard and Dr. Mansfield perform a whole slew of -scopy's and -ology's we can't even name them all! However, some of the more common procedures are colonoscopies, endoscopies, and vasectomies. For your "scopy/ology" needs contact Primary Care Specialists in Pocatello.
Message From Administration
Construction will begin on the main entrance of Mountain View Hospital starting November 19th, permanently closing it until the completion of the new hospital. The new entrance will provide a larger roundabout and covered walkway from the parking garage. We have included some architectural renderings below to show exactly what it will look like when completed. We know this will cause some hurdles for our patients and appreciate your continued commitment to patient care. We are honored with such an amazing team that puts us at the forefront of healthcare in Southeast Idaho.
On the map below you can see that the temporary entrance will be located just to the east of the main entrance by Physical Therapy and Imaging. Starting October 25th, patients will be able to park in our new parking garage. As more information is available we will continue to update this page.

News About PolicyStat
The Mountain View Hospital Policy Manual is available electronically through the intranet home page. Each policy has been developed to ensure that MVH performs to the highest standards of service and healthcare, therefore it is essential that these guidelines are communicated throughout the organization. MVH employees will be assigned policies through the PolicyStat program where they will be required to read and acknowledge understanding of each allocated policy and its progressive updates.
To locate what policies are assigned to you:
1. Log into the "PolicyStat (Policy & Procedures Manual)" on the MVH intranet home page.
(An email notification will be sent from the program once the assignment has been made, you can follow that link.)
2. Refer to the "Home" tab and scroll down to the "Policies Awaiting Acknowledgment" section.
3. Click on the header to access your assigned policy documents. Open each policy*, read through it and click the blue button on the bottom I have read and understood this policy.
*If there are questions regarding information contained in any policy, please direct them first to your manager, then to the policy’s owner.
