2018 Years of Service

Staff celebrating 5 Year Anniversaries at the Years of Service Luncheon

San Luis Valley Health honored employees at the annual Years of Service Ceremonies to recognize SLV Health employees reaching their 5-year and 10+-year service milestones. The engagement and excitement from employees is always heartening and it once again provides the opportunity to recognize the valuable work, coupled with thanking employees for their dedication and service to San Luis Valley Health and our San Luis Valley community.
