MVHN: A look at the new Martha’s Vineyard Hospital

Nis Kildegaard sat outside the new MVHospital this morning with a cast on his leg. He tells the whole story and offers a patient’s view of the new hospital in a column on the MV Times website.

Clearly this staff was still in transition. But just as obviously, they were delighted with this new space. And the care I received was excellent. On that first day as a patient, and on my visits since, I’ve been reminded repeatedly that a hospital facility, no matter how bright and shiny, is essentially the vessel inside which the fundamental transaction — the delivery of care — takes place.

Here’s a bit of the bright and shiny he was talking about — as well as a glance back at the old hospital.
