Aspen Valley Hospital Foundation gives thanks

Deborah Breen, President & CEO
Aspen Valley Hospital Foundation

In this season of giving thanks, Aspen Valley Hospital Foundation extends heartfelt thanks to a very special group of donors: our employees. For over 127 years, it has been the people behind Aspen Valley Hospital who have kept the organization focused on its mission of providing care to our community. Going above and beyond is something very common amongst all AVH employees – it’s just in their DNA! They have committed themselves to helping others and that stretches far beyond their jobs. Employees serve on community boards, volunteer at schools, are volunteer firefighters, are big buddies, bring medical expertise and equipment to remote parts of the world, participate in service clubs, and support a variety of many other worthy causes throughout the region, and beyond. And, so many AVH employees also choose to support the Hospital through the annual employee giving campaign. We are so honored to work side-by-side with such a terrific group of people, and we are thankful for all they do – 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, every day. So, we thought, as Thanksgiving is upon us, that we would pause and take a moment to convey our sincere thanks to all of our wonderful employees – they truly are the heart of Aspen Valley Hospital.
