We put patients at the center of everything we do by listening to their concerns, understanding their needs, honoring their choices and keeping them informed. We recruit and retain dedicated medical providers and staff who value teamwork, open communication and mutual respect. We focus on accountability, continual improvement, and establishing highly engaged relationships with our patients.

Our hospital offers extensive services that include a family birthing center, oncology and chemotherapy, dialysis, home health, hospice, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, and general surgery. Our specialty surgery services include neurosurgery, orthopedics, ENT, gynecology, urology, ophthalmology, foot and ankle, gastrointestinal endoscopy and vascular surgery.

HRRMC provides advanced technologies—such as 3-D digital mammography and PET/CT scanning—that oftentimes are not found in rural hospitals. We also operate rural health clinics in Buena Vista, Salida, Saguache, Westcliffe and Fairplay that bring primary care, women's health, visiting specialists, and laboratory and medical imaging services to Chaffee, Saguache, Custer and Park counties.
