Our history

HRRMC Foundation has supported Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center since November 26, 1986. Its mission is to provide philanthropic resources to HRRMC as the hospital strives to enhance the health of our communities through the delivery of personalized and exceptional care.

HRRMC Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to soliciting, securing and managing donations in support of programs, services and state-of-the-art technology at HRRMC and HRRMC clinics. Donations from individuals and businesses, private and public foundations, and federal and/or state funding allow the HRRMC Foundation to bring healthcare comparable to urban centers to rural Colorado. It takes the entire community to bring about good health, and basic access to healthcare 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 communities.

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

With almost 38,000 patient 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.
