The Mayo Clinic’s expertise will soon be part of patient care at Aspen Valley Hospital, the organizations announced Monday. The Mayo Clinic Care Network is designed to extend its knowledge to physicians and providers in the interest of enhancing health care within communities. It brings a new set of diagnostic tools through programs like e-Consult and AskMayoExpert, but it does not bring staff or physicians to Aspen.
AVH is the first hospital in Colorado to join the network, and the 23rd selected nationwide for the program. It was launched in 2011.
“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.”
Mayo Clinic is a nonprofit worldwide leader in medical care, research and education for people from all walks of life.
