Introducing Health Equity

Ever hear the saying “An individual’s zip code is more predictive of a person’s health than their genetic code”? It’s true; where you live has a larger impact on a person’s health. It impacts access to healthy food, community safety, education, income, housing stability, access to healthcare and many other socioeconomic factors.

These factors are known as social determinants of health (SDOH). And why a “one-size-fits-all” health care model does not fit every patient. Certain patients will require our extra attention and resources to be able to obtain healthcare goals.

Starting this year Mountain View Hospital and Idaho Falls Community Hospital are making a commitment to health equity, which is, the attainment of the highest level of health for all people, where everyone has a fair and just opportunity to attain their optimal health regardless of race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, preferred language, and other factors that affect access to care and health outcomes (Health equity: CMS Innovation Center, n.d.).

Help us in making health equity a priority in 2023! And stay tuned for more information on health equity and ways to make our organization even more equitable.

Commitment to Excellence Nominations

Recognizing Excellence

What does commitment mean? The standard definition reads “the state of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc.” The quarterly Commitment to Excellence award is for those employees who exemplify this definition. Look around-do you work with someone who fits this definition? Chances are you do. Maybe it’s the nurse that worked past the end of her shift to make sure the new mom was comfortable. Maybe it is the admissions clerk who spent extra time with the patient to help them understand how their insurance works, or maybe it’s the cashier in the cafeteria who always greets you with a smile and makes sure you get the cookie you like.

Please take a minute and submit a nomination for these outstanding employees. You can send directly to klefler@mvhospital.net.
