Emergency & Trauma Services Department


Healthcare for loved ones at the most critical time

There can be no higher priority than providing patients with a first-class emergency department to support the skilled emergency professionals who serve us and care for loved ones at critical moments in our lives.

Yampa Valley Medical Center’s Emergency & Trauma Services Department is a key component to the healthcare of our rural community. Between 2013 and 2015, our Emergency Department saw an increase of 13% in patient visits; caring for nearly 9,000 patients in 2015.  That number is expected to grow in the next three years.  In order to continue to meet the healthcare needs of Northwest Colorado, we must expand and modernize our facility.

The Diamonds & Denim 2016 Gala, benefiting the YVMC Emergency & Trauma Services Department was a tremendous success. Because of generous gifts donors, sponsors and through community participation in events such as the Penguin Plunge, contributions far surpassed our expectations raising over $250,000.  Please be sure to mark your calendar for the Diamonds & Denim 2017 Gala on Thursday, August 17, as we continue to raise funds for the Emergency & Trauma Services Department to ensure those who live and work in this region will continue to receive state of the art healthcare, close to home, for many years to come.    For more information about this year’s Diamonds & Denim Gala, please click here.   

All of our caregivers are counting on your support. We look forward to continuing our partnership with you as we care for our communities, now and into the future.

Let’s work together by making your donation today!   Thank you.
