FVH Named Top 100 Hospital
Floyd Valley Hospital was named a Top 100 Critical Access Hospital by iVantage Health Analytics as determined by the company's Hospital Strength Index™.  The Hospital Strength Index is a comprehensive scorecard that evaluates the market conditions, clinical and operational performance, and financial and qualitative outcomes.  The Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals are the nation's best rural safety-net institutions.  Floyd Valley Hospital was one of nine Iowa hospitals to be recognized from 1,267 Critical Access Hospitals nationwide.


"Here is further evidence of what the excellent medical, nursing and support staff of Floyd Valley Hospital do to serve our patients," states Mike Donlin, FVH Administrator.  "It is particularly gratifying to see that our strongest areas on the iVantage scorecard were about quality outcomes and patient satisfaction.  I am very proud to be associated with such talented and caring people!"

Our Volunteers are "Souper"!
Volunteers are very important to the day-to-day business of Floyd Valley Hospital.  Whether it is escorting a patient to a clinic or working at the Annual Omelet Brunch (April 7), they make a difference every day for our patients.  In fact, our volunteers graciously shared approximately 10,800 hours of their time and talents with us in 2012.  To show our appreciation for all that they do, Floyd Valley Hospital hosts an appreciation lunch annually on the first Wednesday of April.   "Our Volunteers are Souper!" Appreciation Luncheon is scheduled for April 3.  We invite all those that help Floyd Valley Hosital by volunteering to please join us!
North Addition Updates
It's no secret that we're expecting to do a capital campaign to support the project. It will be exciting to hear the results of the feasibility study that we've been working on since January. Doing dozens of presentations to more than a hundred interested people (community and staff alike) has made for some hectic scheduling.  The Hospital Trustees will hear the results and make a decision at their April meeting. Then, assuming a positive report from our consultants, the real fun begins!

It's beginning to look like our campaign will have two parts. First will be the obvious requests for people to donate or pledge a gift for the project. The second part will be a campaign to educate people about renewal of the Local Option Sales Tax. You see, our city has pledged a very important contribution to the project...a total of three million dollars! However, two of those millions will not be available if the LOST is allowed to expire. So, a vote will need to be scheduled sometime soon to ask voters to allow the "penny tax" to continue.  


What might that mean for our project? Well, our main funding source, the USDA direct loan, and other sources will cover the actual addition pretty well. It will be up to the success of the capital campaign and the LOST renewal for the remodeling phase to go forward. The remodeling phase includes finishing the last seven patient rooms, relocation of the MRI from the trailer and several other smaller pieces.


I urge you to give the North Addition serious thought and consider helping in any way you can. A financial contribution will be wonderful, but also please resolve to speak positively and often about the project and the importance of renewal of LOST. That positive energy will do a lot for helping your hospital be ready for the future!
