Nonprofit Overview

Causes: General Hospitals, Health

Mission: The mission of our hospital is to develop and maintain a local health care delivery system that serves the region with quality, efficiency and compassion. Our mission is your health.

Programs: Along with providing acute healthcare services to the community as a non-profit entity, cobre valley regional medical center (cvrmc) is committed to the many communities we serve. Several members of our administration, directors, managers, and staff serve on various community associations including: chambers of commerce, rotary, work force development, economic development, cancer awareness committees, diabetes education, grief support teams, scholarship committees, aquatic center and youth athletic programs, to name just a few. Cvrmc has its finger on the pulse of the community, provides charitable care with purpose, and offers educational services and programs for the good of our public. Several stakeholders from across gila county and the cvrmc service region are currently working through a community-driven community health improvement plan (chip) which is addressing the most pressing health issues facing our residents. Led by the gila county division of health and emergency management (gcdhem) and cvrmc, community members and organizations have come together to work through actions to affect change for the health needs of our communities. The process of the community health needs assessment took place from september 2015 through december of 2015. The community health improvement plan was produced from the data collected from the needs of our population and gcdhem and cvrmc are currently working with community organizations to formulate concrete actions to address the four health priorities identified in the chip: obesity, substance abuse, access to quality healthcare - including mental health services, and sexual health. The first chna and chip was completed by cvrmc in 2013 with many action plans driving the success of our identified community health issues. Together, with the collaboration of gcdhem and many health care organizations and professionals of our service area, we will respond to the identified needs of all our diverse communities with this next chip. The expansion project of cvrmc began in february of 2015 and is expected to complete in august of 2016. The new construction includes all new, family-centered, single-patient rooms - med/surg, icu, and family birth center - which will bring comfort to the patients and their families we serve. The expansion also included new pharmacy, cath lab, wound center, infusion center, café and kitchen, gift shop, and conference rooms. The 11,000 square feet of new physician offices and exam rooms will provide for growth and will centralize services for the convenience of our patients. Cvrmc sponsors an annual health fair, working with other local and state social and charitable agencies to distribute and disseminate health, wellness, safety and other valuable information. Without any charge to our communities, cvrmc sponsors diabetic workshops, birthing and new baby care classes, customer service training, and grief support meetings. Many community organizations have taken advantage of the conference rooms cvrmc has to offer free of charge for meetings and educational training. Some examples of these groups are teenage outreach for pregnancy services, rotary club, little league, ems training, gila community college and many more. Meeting places are difficult to find in our rural community and cvrmc is pleased to accommodate our neighboring associations. Cvrmc is continually upgrading and improving equipment. Much of the equipment that is replaced is still viable and is passed on to education facilities, fire departments, or other local agencies that will continue to get useful years for their programs and services. Supplies are also donated regularly to ems, schools, senior citizen groups, and other organizations in need of medical and or other types of supplies. The pact committee, comprised of cvrmc staff, dedicates its efforts to making a difference in employee and community relations. The pact committee is instrumental in the activities of many hospital activities, promoting employee engagement and satisfaction. The pact committee also helps cvrmc employees through the hope (helping our people in emergencies) fund. Donations made to the hope fund are used in times of emergency for employees. The pact committee also ensures the hospital's presence in community events to build public support and trust. As we celebrate 103 years of service to the globe-miami and surrounding communities, cvrmc continues to evolve with the changing needs of our population base. Healthcare is ever moving and advancing and cvrmc is progressing with the demands of our target markets. The continued accomplishments we have made are a direct result of a dedicated and compassionate workforce, a steadfast board of directors, and strong supporting management which is focused on one mission - the mission of health with quality, efficiency, and compassion. With the development of our next 3-year strategic plan, we are focused on these areas: the patient experience (quality and customer service) people growth community (including the chna and chip) today, the healthcare arena is facing some monumental changes and challenges. This strategic plan encompasses our accountability and compassion to patients and families; our respect and collaboration to all who surround us; our earnest responsibility to grow with the needs of our population; and our social and public responsibility as healthcare leaders of our communities. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, cvrmc is committed to our communities with an unwavering dedicated spirit.
