Best hospital in world right here in Vail

Fritz Kaser
Vail, CO, Colorado

After spending a great winter skiing here in the Vail Valley, at the end of the season I came down with an illness that required surgery.

Immediately after coming to the Vail Valley Medical Center I was examined and diagnosed by Dr. Downey and Mountain Surgical Associates.

After a week in the PCU, the infection had improved sufficiently for Dr. Andrew Lawrence to perform the surgery that has led to my speedy recovery.

I believe that between the competence of Dr. Downey and his associates and the compassionate attention and care I experienced from the staff while being in the Patient Care Unit at the center, I received the best care I could have gotten anywhere in the world.

I believe that people in the area are fortunate to have a facility of this caliber at their disposal in case they are faced with a similar situation.

This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Thank you all.
