At the close of the transaction, Davis Hospital and Medical Center, Jordan Valley Medical Center, Jordan Valley Medical Center-West Valley Campus, Mountain Point Medical Center, and Salt Lake Regional Medical Center and associated clinics will become part of Centura Health’s regional, multi-state health system, based in Centennial, CO, which includes 20 hospitals and 260 clinics across Colorado and western Kansas.
We expect this to be a seamless transition. Patients and communities will continue to receive excellent, local care from the providers they know and trust with the same level of high-quality, compassionate care that they expect from hospitals.
Providing high-quality, whole person care is core to our ministry and we are on a journey to become a High Reliability Organization (HRO).
Through our HRO journey and commitment to excellence, 10 of our hospitals received “A” Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades this past spring — a national distinction that recognizes our achievements in protecting patients from preventable harm. In 2022, five of our hospitals were also recognized with 5-star ratings for overall hospital quality by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Today nothing changes. We expect this to be a seamless transition. Patients and the communities will continue to receive excellent, local care from the providers they know and trust.
Nothing changes today and it is our intent to assume all insurance agreements. Importantly, we expect this to be a seamless transition for our patients and providers.
Nothing changes today. Contact information and processes to arrange and schedule appointments with your provider remain the same. After the transaction closes, we will see if there are even more ways for you to access your provider.
Our Connected Ecosystem
At Centura, our 21,000 incredible caregivers are the foundation to providing whole person care in each of our flourishing communities.
We have invested more than $230 million in our people over the past two years, including a nursing retention bonus, a food and household necessities purchasing program, a living wage program, and several benefit enhancements, including tuition reimbursement, loan forgiveness, childcare support, and housing stipends.
As a physician-facing health system, our doctors and advanced practice providers are at the forefront of our decision-making and are central to our Mission to nurture the health of the people in our communities.
As a meaningful link between our patients and our ministry, we believe in enabling medical providers to help shape how care is delivered.
Diversity and Inclusion
Our values and Mission compel us to be an organization intentional in our commitment to diversity and inclusion for all. In 2020, Centura established its Social Justice Framework to make our workplaces, care sites and communities more equitable.
In support of this work, Centura launched the Health Equity and Advancement Fund to serve and partner with our vibrant communities. The program, a $1 million fund created in 2021 that grew to $5 million in 2022, extends Centura’s Mission to more than 60 non-profit organizations, meeting the profound mental health, food security, social justice, and health equity needs across Colorado and Kansas. Utah non-profits with initiatives focused on improving the community in these important areas will have the opportunity to apply for grants from this program.
We believe that when mind, body and spirit are in harmony — people flourish. That’s why Centura Health invested more than $352 million in our communities in FY 2022, providing high-quality care to underserved populations, offering health education and prevention programs to the community, providing emergency services and disaster preparedness, investing in medical research, and creating jobs and supporting local businesses.
These community benefit investments promote access to care by bringing medical services to community members when and where they need them most.
