Mission Statement of the Hospitals of the Blue Mountain Health System:To promote, maintain and restore the good health of all the people in the communities we serve through partnerships for excellence in healthcare service delivery.To promote, maintain and restore the good health of all the people in the communities we serve through partnerships for excellence in healthcare service delivery.What m...atters most to us are the people we serve and the people who serve them.On July 1, 2004, Gnaden Huetten Memorial Hospital and Palmerton Hospital entered into an historic decision combining their organizations to create an integrated health care system. Prior to this decision, a joint leadership committee was created to oversee the affiliation of the two hospitals and selected Conrad Biege as chairman of the new corporation. "This agreement marks a new beginning for the future of health care in the area," stated the new chairman. From Competition to Cooperation:The creation of the Blue Mountain Health System ended an era of competition and started a new era of cooperation between Carbon County's two hospitals. While competition in most industries is generally good for the consumer, competition in health care tends to result in duplication of services and in higher costs. Palmerton and Gnaden Huetten hospitals faced the same challenges as hospitals across the nation straining under the burden of increasing labor costs, higher malpractice insurance premiums, increasing costs of pharmaceuticals and supplies, and declining reimbursement. By working together, the hospitals of the Blue Mountain Health System have been able to continue to provide quality, compassionate healthcare to the residents of Carbon County and the surrounding areas.
