Patient satisfaction is up, according to the top brass at Canyon Vista Medical Center. This week, we were joined by hospital CEO Randy Anderson, chief medical officer Dr. Willie Cochran, and board chair Bruce Dockter, who told us about the progress the 100-bed facility has been making since opening more than 2 years ago. They also addressed the current campaign by Copper Queen Hospital in Bisbee to encourage local residents to use its emergency room services.
The health theme also ran through the second hour when Carrie Langley, Cochise County’s Health & Social Services Director, dropped by to talk about what her department does and how it helps the region’s citizens – you’ll be surprised by what they do. We also caught up with the Friends of the Sierra Vista Animal Shelter, who received $500 from the Sierra Vista Herald, thanks to a recent pet-themed fundraiser.
During our first hour we mused over the week’s news with the Herald’s Eric Petermann, including the appointment of a new Sierra Vista economic development manager, ongoing plans to build a new Port of Entry near Douglas, the purchase of Donovan Dodge by Lawley Automotive, and the Sonoran Fest in Bisbee that cost the city more than $64,000.
