avista_adventist_hospital_aerial-895558_650x400You know Boulder County is ranked as one of the healthiest counties in Colorado, if not all of America, right?

A new national study shows we are some of the most physically active people who enjoy a higher life expectancy and have excellent access to first-class primary care doctors. (Daily Camera, 3.20.13)

Today the Boulder County Business Report posted that many of those excellent doctors also happen to serve you and me in nationally top-ranked hospitals – the elite 15% of all America for excellent patient experience.

I’m starting to feel better than ever!

Healthgrades Inc., a private research firm studied data from across the nation for three years. They measured data from a survey about doctor and nurse communications, hospital cleanliness, medication, and post-discharge care instructions to name a few.

Colorado has the honor of being home to 12 hospitals who just received the 2013 Healthgrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award and 3 of are right here in Boulder County.

Louisville – Avista Adventist Hospital
Kay and I have personal experience with this excellent facility as our beautiful daughter was born there 17 years ago. Besides the amazing care and excellent facilities Kay had a million dollar view of the Flatirons and Back Range from her bed.

Lafayette – Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center
Exempla prides itself in creating a healing environment. A special art program showcases over 400 pieces of art for patients to enjoy. Some of these pieces include sculpture, blown glass, ceramics, photography, and quilts. Exempla also believes in the healing power of music and so they provide the soothing sounds of blended light jazz, classical and others styles.

Longmont – Longmont United Hospital
We all know plenty of jokes about hospital food but Longmont’s United Hospital has added a feature that drops the joke. They offer unique family kitchens where patients and families can prepare their own food or bring something from home. How comforting it would be to have a bowl of mom’s chicken soup if you ever find yourself in the hospital!
