Medical Services Competition – Coming to Eagle County – Summer 2016
Centura Health vs. Kaiser Permanente vs. Vail Hospital/VVMC
To Date (23MAY2016) the Vail Hospital has shown complete “competitive abstinence” – refusing to cut any (Medical Services – deals) with Centura nor Kaiser. Not to mention what VVMC “routinely” overcharges our Community for basic Medical Services.
What your Family and Business can expect for Medical Services in the short term?
KP – from their current Edwards Offices – has inked a deal with Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs – so if you require more Medical Services (example: MRI imaging) than KP can provide in Edwards – you’ll most likely go to Valley View.
Likewise: If you need more extensive Hospitalization from Centura Health’s new ASC in Avon – you’ll likely be moved to St. Anthony’s’ Hospital in Frisco, Colorado – owned and operated by Centura. St. Anthony’s is a Level (3) Trauma Center – serviced by the Flight for Life Helicopter.
ECT wishes to thank Ms. Amy Laurent – of Centura Health for Centura’s information disclosed in this ECT report.
More news coming.
