The Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center Board will hear the results of a survey designed to gauge employee engagement at its monthly session Tuesday, January 24.

The employee survey, conducted between Nov. 1 and 17, 2022 will be described by Randy Crews, Human Resources Director in three levels of psychological engagement. The levels range from highly involved and enthusiastic, to not engaged and not psychologically attached to their work and company, to those actively disengaged, sometimes unhappy and resentful. He will compare the survey results with similar trends across U.S. workplaces.

In addition, the board will address the recent disclosure that HRRMC has been inadvertently in violation of the Taxpayers Bill of Rights (TABOR) in its setting of the district mill tax levy for a number of years after an investigation by Fiscal Services Vice President Lesley Fagerberg after a board member raised a question about whether the law’s provisions were being applied correctly.

The board will discuss the resolution in an executive session and later consider a resolution detailing how much is owed in taxpayer refunds and how they will be administered.

CEO Bob Morasko will update the board on several developments, including changes in adult inpatient care at First Street Family practice and Salida Health Center. He will also report on employee housing progress, and the hospitality house project, as well as provide a construction update for the new wound center on the main hospital campus.

The board will also consider purchase requests for upgrading security cameras in the Emergency Department due to the lack of surveillance in some high-risk areas, discuss resection surgery equipment for the Urology Department, and ophthalmology cataract sets.
