Platte Valley Medical Center is an excellent place to work with a proven success of hiring and retaining quality employees. In fact, the turnover rate among staff is significantly lower than that of Denver metro area healthcare facilities. In 2013, PVMC’s overall employee turnover rate is only 7.8% compared to a Denver Metro area healthcare turnover rate of 16.7%.
A Culture of Excellence and Care
While we are Brighton’s third largest employer with 605 staff, we recognize and value that one of our greatest strengths
continues to derive from the friendships and alliances found throughout the Hospital.
A Culture of Safety
With clinical staff comprising 60% of our employee base, we have adopted a nationally recognized teamwork system to improve patient safety, communication, and leadership skills. This evidence-based program, Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety (Team-STEPPS), is designed for health care professionals and is scientifically rooted in more than 20 years of research and lessons from the application of teamwork principles.
Every other year, our employees participate in a staff satisfaction survey. In 2012, PVMC’s ratings improved in every area—work life, leadership, mission, quality and safety—with 40 out of 41 metrics scoring higher (17% higher, on average) than in our 2010 survey.
