Plans continue to move forward for the hospital's proposed North Addition. Now in the second round of design work, hospital staff continue to meet with the architects
to create patient-friendly areas in the clinic, surgery and registration. The efficiency that will be created for both patients and staff in locating both the family medicine and specialty physicians in one area and sharing ancillary services such as lab and x-ray will equate to better continuity of care for patients.
The new design of the clinic space will also lend itself to the medical home concept that the Family Medicine Clinics have been working on and is now required under the Affordable Care Act
. As a part of that process, the Family Medicine Clinics have moved to the care team model where the patient works directly with a Patient Service Coordinator (PSC) and nursing staff for their chosen health care provider. While this has been a positive step for patients, the limitations posed by the existing Le Mars building does not allow for the optimal use of this system. These issues will be addressed in the new space.
We invite you to continue monitoring the progress of the project on our website.
Information on the North Addition
There are still patients that do not realize the wide array of surgeries offered locally at Floyd Valley Hospital.
Floyd Valley Hospital has three general surgeons and one orthopedic surgeon on staff in addition to the eight area specialists that perform procedures and surgeries right on our campus. Most are aware of the general surgeries that can be performed in Le Mars, but we can also accommodate larger cases such as total knee and hip replacements. Specialty areas we offer include ear, nose and throat (ENT); ophthalmology; urology and podiatry.
A new procedure offered through our surgery department is balloon sinuplasty. This procedure provides chronic sinus sufferers with a less invasive solution to their sinus issues.
Our physical and occupational therapists and staff will make sure you get back on the road to health, whether you are starting your therapy while recovering in the hospital after your surgery or begin after you are home. One benefit of in-hospital therapy is that your deductible is most likely met with your surgery, so you will not need to pay a co-pay or any other fees for your visits.
If you have a surgery in your future, please check with your provider or our surgery staff to see if you can have your procedure or surgery at Floyd Valley Hospital. With our award-winning staff, dedicated physicians and advanced equipment you will be glad you did!
