Medical Center of the Rockies (MCR) is opening its doors to the community for a Town Hall gathering on Thursday, April 3 from 4:30-7:00 pm. The newly-appointed president and CEO for MCR, Kevin Unger, PhD, FACHE, will speak at the gathering and MCR staff will offer tours, highlighting the hospital’s state-of-the-art cardiac surgery wing. The Town Hall will also include a short program to meet the dedicated team at MCR, as well as a reception on the hospital’s 5th floor patio, which offers magnificent mountain views.
“I look forward to meeting with members of the community to share our plans for advancing this exceptional hospital,” said Unger. “I’m very excited about our commitment to improving patient care and quality, as well as how our innovative research programs work to push us forward.”
Unger is President/CEO of Poudre Valley Hospital (PVH) and Medical Center of the Rockies (MCR), two hospitals within the University of Colorado Health system. He has served as president and CEO of PVH since 2005. In January 2014, he was named as president and CEO of MCR. He has worked within the Poudre Valley Health System since 2001.
“Since taking on my new role, I have become much more familiar with MCR’s remarkable staff and facility and I am energized by the quality of care in our patient-centered environment,” said Mr. Unger. “This forum offers a unique opportunity for us to exchange ideas about how the hospital and its neighbors can work together towards creating a healthier and safer community in Loveland and the surrounding areas.”
MCR is a partnership between University of Colorado Health (formerly Poudre Valley Health System) and Regional West Health Services of Scottsbluff, Nebraska. Since opening its doors in February 2007, MCR has been providing the people of northern Colorado with a full spectrum of medical services, specializing in heart and trauma care. MCR offers the region’s most advanced cardiac care, including one of the region’s leading robotic-assisted surgery programs. The hospital also serves as a Level II regional trauma center with teams of specialty physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, radiology technologists and others standing by 24 hours a day.
More than a hospital, MCR offers health care – with healing gardens, kitchens and lounges for guests and families, spectacular views of Longs Peak, large private patient rooms with warm décor, windows that open and a place for loved ones to sleep. The hospital prides itself on becoming a leader and innovator in patient satisfaction, nursing excellence and specialized health care, and has received several awards in these areas.
Limited spots are still available to attend the gathering on April 3. People or parties who are interested in attending and/or learning how they can become a supporter of the hospital, should contact Rebecca Bowen at 970.237.7400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
