OUCHLESS ER | Sept 2017

Just inside the ER is Room 8, a dedicated space for pediatric emergency treatment.

Local artist Lucy Beck transformed the room with a mural featuring rural animals and wildlife. It's a bit like walking into a giant coloring book - and what child wouldn't love that? While they're visiting the ER, children can also access everything from stuffed animals to tablets loaded with kid-friendly apps and videos.

"Emergency care is a 'scary unknown' for children," says KVH Emergency Department Director Dede Utley, whose staff have the clinical training and specialized equipment for an "ouchless" patient experience. "We want to make it as pleasant as possible."

DIGITAL MAMMOGRAPHY | Sept 2017
KVH provides about 3,000 mammograms every year. We can zoom, adjust contrast, and sharpen images just like a digital camera, spotting subtle changes that look normal on film scans.

WORKPLACE HEALTH | Sept 2017
We provide a spectrum of occupational medicine services, from pre-employment drug screening and mask fit testing to on-the-job injury treatment and return-to-work exams.

OUTPATIENT PHARMACY | Aug 2017
Conveniently located inside the hospital, our 24-hour pharmacy services also include optional free texts when refills are ready to be picked up.


KVH's Ouchless E.R. and Digital Mammography services are made possible in part by the generosity of community donors through the work of The Foundation at KVH.

Thank you for giving!
