Poudre Valley Hospital's Community Case Management Program won the 2009 Magnet Prize, the highest honor given to Magnet organizations by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).
The Magnet Prize recognizes organizations with unique programs where innovative action transforms nursing practice.
The PVH program focuses on preventative care and helps patients, families and providers to work together to manage chronic disease. The program targets patients with inadequate support systems and financial resources, and provides them with a safety net to deal with complex issues that may otherwise result in avoidable visits to the emergency room or healthcare provider.
The Community Case Management Program helps patients with disease management and life skills so that they can continue living in their own homes.
