UCHealth is our leading agency and we are so thankful to be apart of such a great system. We are especially thankful this month for the partnership we have with our counterparts at University of Colorado Hospital, the Trauma/Emergency Department at Poudre Valley Hospital (PVH) and UCHealth EMS. Collaboration between these departments allowed us to pilot the Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth (P.A.R.T.Y.) program at PVH with Poudre High School in March.
Throughout the program the students heard from experts in each of those departments where it was obvious the passion and commitment they have for their profession. The passion spilled over into a desire to prevent those students from ever encountering them while on duty. Hearing this made the students more aware of their actions and the ripple effect – where an action does not only affect yourself but others as well.
We truly appreciate everyone’s dedication to treating patients and taking time out of their day to educate on prevention. The P.A.R.T.Y program would not run without their help!
Poudre Valley Hospital is a level III trauma center and opened in 1925. The new Emergency Department opened in February 2017 to accommodate their growing census and provide optimum care to patients and their families. PVH and MCR are apart of the UCHealth System.
