Blanding, UT - Blue Mountain Hospital’s Chief Executive Officer,
Jeremy Lyman, won the Excellence in Care During COVID-19 award at the
9th Annual Rural Hospital Administrators’ Summit on June 10, 2021
held in Bryce Canyon, Utah.
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’s 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.
