It was a memorable day at Intermountain Utah Valley Hospital last week as the facility, led by Hospital Administrator Kevin Brooks, experienced their first Day in the Life event. Mr. Brooks commented that “HTS is a fantastic partner.” We return the compliment to the leadership and over 300 participants who were engaged, excited, and prepared for the day. In total, 17 departments and several key ancillary areas participated and tested processes and workflows to ensure all possible issues were uncovered and resolved before the first day of operations.  A nurse expressed a common sentiment when she said, “It already feels like home!” And what a home this will be for the Provo, Utah communities – a 12-story, 600,000-square-foot patient tower with an abundant use of natural lighting, large and private patient rooms, treatment space that brings together hospital services, “on-stage” and “off-stage” areas so that patient care is not disrupted, educational and exercise space for patients and their families, and walking paths that include a pond and waterfall.

The HTS team of specialists led by Melanie Viquez and Erin Clark greatly appreciate the support of Utah Valley Hospital’s leadership.  Along with Mr. Brooks, Nursing Administrator Maria Black and Project Manager Josh Rohatinsky were on hand for Day in the Life. Here are some photos of the event that we’d like to share with you. Enjoy!
