Blue Mountain Hospital CEO Jeremy Lyman wins award at rural hospital administrators summit
Blue Mountain Hospital (BMH) Chief Executive Officer Jeremy Lyman won the Excellence in Care During COVID-19 award at the ninth annual Rural Hospital Administrators Summit on June 10 in Bryce Canyon, UT.
The Rural Hospital Administrators Summit is an annual event organized by the Utah Department of Health (UDOH) Office of Primary Care and Rural Health (OPCRH) to bring administrators together and highlight the importance of offering healthcare in rural areas.
Each year at the summit, the OPCRH recognizes three individuals for awards that highlight the effort put forth to support healthcare in their communities, specifically through the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Rural hospitals play a vital role in their communities. In addition to the economic benefit they provide, they also integrate the community’s needs into their care,” said Ashley Moretz, Director of the Office of Primary Care and Rural Health.
This year, Blue Mountain Hospital CEO Jeremy Lyman was awarded the Excellence in Care During COVID-19 award for his leadership during the pandemic, including the launch of the peritoneal dialysis program at BMH.
“This award is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of all the staff at Blue Mountain Hospital, and I am honored to accept it on their behalf,” said Jeremy Lyman.
“Blue Mountain Hospital is incredibly thankful to the OPCRH for recognizing Jeremy Lyman at their annual summit, and we are excited to offer the peritoneal dialysis program to our community,” said a representative.
Blue Mountain Hospital, an 11-bed Critical Access Hospital, provides comprehensive healthcare services to the residents and visitors of San Juan County and the surrounding areas.
It provides medical services beyond what many expect to find in a rural hospital, including dialysis, obstetrics, emergency care, orthopedics, and more.
Blue Mountain Hospital is a not-for-profit 501(c)-3 charitable organization located in Blanding.
