HRRMC Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to soliciting, securing and managing donations in support of programs, services and state-of-the-art technology at HRRMC. Donations from individuals and businesses, private and public foundations, and federal and/or state funding allow HRRMC Foundation to bring health care comparable to urban centers to rural Colorado. It takes the entire community to bring about good health, and basic access to health care is an important first step. Our supporters understand that a modern, state-of-the-art medical center is vital to better meet the health-care needs of our community.

The Denver and Rio Grande (DRG) Hospital located in Salida, Colorado, was established in 1885 for all Colorado state employees. DRG Hospital was then sold to a group of Salida community leaders in 1962 and was operated as a private corporation until 1976 when the Salida Hospital District was formed. In 1989, the hospital's name changed to Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center (HRRMC) to better reflect the communities served and the services and programs offered.

HRRMC is a rural 25-bed community-focused Critical Access Hospital and Level IV Trauma center. HRRMC is the recognized health-care resource and primary care facility for Chaffee and portions of Fremont, Saguache and Park counties.

With almost 38,000 patients visits each year, HRRMC serves residents and visitors to the Upper Arkansas Valley with century-old traditions of compassion, personal service, and individualized care. HRRMC has grown over the years to meet the ever-changing medical needs of the communities served.
