Aspen Valley joins

Mayo Clinic network

Mayo Clinic and Aspen Valley Hospital officials announced that the hospital was recently selected to be a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, which was established by Mayo to extend its knowledge and expertise to physicians and providers interested in working together to enhance the delivery of health care within their communities. Aspen Valley Hospital (AVH) is the first network member in Colorado. “AVH is honored to be the first hospital in Colorado selected to be a Mayo Clinic Care Network member,” says John Sarpa, interim CEO at Aspen Valley Hospital. “Sharing a common philosophy, commitment and mission to improve the delivery of health care through the use of best practices and evidence-based medical care provides a solid foundation for this collaboration.”

Aspen Valley Hospital providers now have access to Mayo Clinic resources to enhance patient care, including the latest Mayo-vetted medical information through its AskMayoExpert database and electronic consulting that connects physicians with Mayo Clinic experts on questions of diagnosis, therapy or care management. The Mayo Clinic Care Network represents non-ownership relationships. Members of the network remain independent and share a goal of improving the delivery of health care in their communities through high-quality, collaborative medical care. Launched in 2011, the Mayo Clinic Care Network now has members in Colorado and 11 other states as well as Puerto Rico and Mexico.
