Putting the “care” in health care


We provide exceptional health care at GVMH but what people tend to remember most about their experience is the “care” they receive.  “Care” extends beyond meeting a patients physical and medical needs, “care” is about exceeding a patients expectations and meeting their emotional and spiritual needs as well.

Below is a recent Facebook post from a Mom who had a c-section in our Birthing Center.  Our Birthing Center staff did everything they could to make a tense situation as good as possible for Mom and baby.  At the time of delivery tensions were high and outcome uncertain but staff made it a priority to “care” for both Mom and baby in ways that met their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

You can see from the post that Birthing Center Staff provided exceptional health care and you can also see that they provided “care” outside of the scope of the health care delivery process.

I’m happy to report that Mom and baby are home and doing great.  Miracles happen every day at GVMH and I’d like to thank our Birthing Center Staff for putting the “care” in health care!
