Medical Center of the Rockies named Large Business of the Year

For immediate release: Jan. 18, 2013

Medical Center of the Rockies named Large Business of the Year 

The Loveland Chamber of Commerce has named Medical Center of the Rockies as the Large Business of the Year.

The award was announced Friday night at the chamber’s annual Investors Dinner at the Embassy Suites in Loveland.


Medical Center of the Rockies is a 166-bed regional medical center with a full spectrum of services and specializing in heart and trauma care. With more than 1,500 physicians and employees and more than 300 community volunteers, MCR cares for more than 7,600 inpatients and 111,100 outpatients annually.

“This honor is a reflection of the dedication of the remarkable staff at MCR and the commitment University of Colorado Health has in making our community a healthier place in which to live, work and play,” said George Hayes, MCR president and CEO.

The award caps off a big year for MCR. Not only did the hospital celebrate its fifth anniversary, but it also launched Air Link, an emergency medical air transportation program that serves residents within a 200-mile radius of Loveland and features a high-altitude helicopter that’s capable of reaching difficult areas of the Rocky Mountains. Another new addition to the MCR campus in 2012 was a $6 million rehabilitation unit that opened Oct. 1. The 17,600-square-foot unit helps people who have experienced major injury or illness to regain the skills necessary for everyday life.

Finally, 2012 also was the year that Poudre Valley Health System – MCR’s parent organization – partnered with University of Colorado Hospital to form University of Colorado Health. The partnership will enable MCR to better push the boundaries of medicine, attract more research funding, host more clinical trials and improve health through innovation in Loveland.

The chamber’s Business of the Year Award is awarded to a business that demonstrates innovation, entrepreneurial spirit; exemplary customer service; high standards of integrity; professionalism and ethics; extraordinary examples to staff and other businesses; solid financial performance; and community involvement and contributions. The small business category recognizes businesses with 25 or fewer employees while the large business category recognizes businesses with 26 or more employees.

“It is a privilege to be in the same company as the others who were recognized for their outstanding contributions to the community tonight,” Hayes said. “We are honored and proud to call Loveland home.”
