We are Brighton’s third largest employer with 750 associates – while many live in our community, many more commute up to an hour or more to work in our warm and inviting culture and enjoy great work-life balance.
Because we’re a smaller hospital providing a higher level of care, long-lasting friendships are formed quickly and many lives are saved in our community. Through the delivery of our 10 Pillars of Healing, we’re a place associates choose to work, doctors want to practice, and patients select for care.
A culture of safe, excellent, person-centered care
We believe safe, loving care is key to excellence. Every employee at Platte Valley Medical Center follows a national teamwork system to improve patient safety, communication and leadership. We deliver some of the most progressive patient-centered programs in the nation.
It’s not just what we say, it’s how we live
Our work is a reflection of our care and concern for each other and our patients. We’re all caregivers, and we all take personal pride and responsibility to:
- Act quickly and decisively
- Collaborate to achieve unified goals
- Communicate effectively
- Maintain a professional workplace
- Treat others with respect
It’s not simply what we say we are; it’s truly who we are.
