West Valley Hospital

West Valley Hospital has been serving the community form more than a 100 years. It is the home of Polk County’s only 24 hour emergency department and it offers a wide range of services including imaging, surgery, and rehabilitation.

“To improve the health and well-being of the people and community we serve.” Their mission expressed their purpose for existing as a tax-exempt health care organization. “Exceptional Experience Every Time.” Their vision describes where they want to be – it’s aspirational. They strive to achieve their vision every day, with everything they do and say.

With their vision in mind, West Valley Hospital is looking for community members to apply to participate in their Patient Family Advisory Council. The Patient Family Advisory Council is a unique group of individuals who will be chosen to partner with West Valley Hospital to become involved in strategizing ways to improve the patient experience. West Valley Hospital believes that by partnering with their community members with the common goal of patient centered care, they will continue to be outstanding in this area and continue to strive towards excellence.

The Patient Family Advisory Council will meet monthly, during the noon hour, with a provided lunch. West Valley Hospital is targeting May for their first meeting.

You may pick up applications at the hospital Administration office at 525 SE Washington Street, or email Nikki.Thomas@salemhealth.org.
