We asked members of the emergency team at Aspen Valley Hospital, “How will the new emergency department help you take care to the next level?” Here is what they had to say:

Becky Headden, RN
Director of Emergency and Cardiopulmonary Services
Aspen Valley Hospital

“Now, we have a much more functional emergency department (ED) with increased privacy for patients and their families and friends. This improvement will serve our community members and visitors alike as it provides state-of-the-art equipment and allows for future growth. A big thank you to all who have contributed their time and efforts to provide such a fine facility to our patients!”

Joe Livengood, MD, FACS
General Surgeon, Trauma Medical Director
Aspen Valley Hospital

“Surgeons work in a flow much like a conductor moves through a piece of music, pulling in the right instrument at the right time for seamless progression towards a goal of perfection. Interrupting the flow of surgery repeatedly in order to move equipment in a room designed from decades ago is directly counter to this goal. Our new facilities create an environment that enables excellence in care that everyone in Aspen should expect and be proud to have available locally.”

Ray Knable, RN
Emergency Department
Aspen Valley Hospital

“The new ED provides much needed privacy that the old department lacked due to a limited physical layout. I am proud of the excellent service we provide and the great scores we achieve. I feel that with the new ED we can continue to meet and exceed patient expectations.”

Les Fraser, MD, FACS
General Surgeon
Aspen Valley Hospital

“The new ED provides the appropriate space required to use modern equipment, and gives patients a comfortable and private experience at one of their most uncomfortable and difficult times.”
