Yampa Valley Medical Center is so much more than a hospital – it’s a lifeline in an emergency, an expert medical services provider, a safety net for anyone in need, and the heartbeat of the Yampa Valley.  

Since 2001, Yampa Valley Medical Center Foundation has depended on private philanthropy from our Annual Appeal to support capital upgrades, technology and professional development.   What we do is not possible without you.   Read on to found out more about what you are supporting.

More than a hospital…
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.   Your gift will help us 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.
