Ballad Health News now delivering important info about our new system!

On Jan. 22, the first Ballad Health News was rolled out to team members at both Mountain States and Wellmont, delivering important information about our merger into Ballad Health. You can find the information at www.BalladHealthNews.com.

Ballad Health News will soon replace The Mountain Star as your regular newsletter for system news. At first it will focus only on high-level, merger-related information as we work toward the official beginning of Ballad Health – answering a lot of the most pressing questions you have and systematically addressing the hot topics. Before long, the newsletter will expand to contain all kinds of stories, photos, videos and other interactive items about our Ballad Health team members and facilities, much like The Mountain Star for the past five years.

You may have had technical difficulties with the first emailed issue of Ballad Health News, though. If so, please try again to connect to www.BalladHealthNews.com. You might have better luck trying it in browsers other than Internet Explorer 10 – such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer 11. It is also accessible by mobile device or your home computer. Please email Doug.Janz@msha.com to let us know what your user experience is like as we iron out the wrinkles.

In case you missed the Jan. 22 issue of Ballad Health News, here’s what it contained:

Included on the Ballad Health News website is an online survey allowing you to give your input as we develop our set of Ballad Health values, and there’s also a submission form to send us your inspiring stories about team members or patients who go above and beyond the normal call of duty.

Over the coming days, be on the lookout for frequent Ballad Health News issues with important news about the new system. Thanks for your patience as we roll out this new information source and begin the journey as Ballad Health!
