Paper Abstract

Good morning! VHA Iowa is an alliance of 14 hospitals, ranging in size from 15 average patient census to 300 average patient census. It operates 11 mobile medical diagnostic units ranging, in terms of technology, from echocardiography to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to lithotripsy, serving 65 client hospitals in 4 states. We also operate Iowa Medical Waste Reduction Center, which is a regional infectious waste treatment program, and, we are in the beginning stages of forming VHi Rehabilitation Services, L.C., to provide various types of rehabilitation therapy services to smaller hospitals, nursing homes, and businesses.
