Valley Presbyterian Hospital (VPH) announced today their plans to strengthen business development efforts by implementing strategies to increase patient and physician satisfaction; recruitment and retention of seasoned primary care physicians and specialists; and expansion of comprehensive services based on community needs.

“The community that we serve is central to all that we do,” said Gustavo Valdespino, President and Chief Executive Officer for VPH. “While Valley Pres has continued to see significant volume growth across multiple service areas, it is equally important that we continue to maintain a community-centered approach to patient care. From our board to our leadership, medical staff and employees — we are all equally committed to providing the highest quality patient care and experience.”

As an example of its serving the needs of the community, Valley Pres launched the grand opening of its Amputation Prevention Center. The center is home to an expanding under served population of people with diabetes. It offers inpatient and outpatient specialized diagnostics and surgery for diabetic patients with limb-threatening conditions.

The hospital also advanced its technology in the Imaging Department with the acquisition of a 64-Slice CT scanner, nuclear medicine camera, radio fluoroscopy room, and two new vascular ultrasound machines. Significant renovations to the operating room suites have also been made to support orthopedic, cardiac, and complex spine surgeries.
