San Luis Valley Health Participates in Colorado Alternatives to Opioids Project
San Luis Valley Health (SLVH) is participating in the Colorado Alternatives To Opioids (ALTO) Project as part of the Hospital Transformation Program to reduce the administration of opioids in our hospitals’ emergency departments (ED).
SLV Health’s goal is to improve pain management for its patients and return them to a maximum quality of life while also recognizing and controlling the inherent risks of prescribing highly addictive medications like opioids. SLV Health’s clinicians are dedicated to understanding and responding appropriately to patients’ physical and emotional symptoms of pain and helping the community combat the ongoing opioid epidemic. This project includes both the Regional Medical Center in Alamosa and Conejos County Hospital in La Jara.
