Our Projects

2021 projects

ICU ventilation system upgrade: In December of 2021, with support from a grant awarded by the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) , HRRMC completed an upgrade to its ICU by creating patient rooms that function with a ventilation system known as negative pressure. Negative pressure rooms support infection control and isolation for patients who have highly contagious airborne illnesses including COVID, tuberculosis, SARS and MERS. This system, beneficial to both patients and staff, has become the standard of care in hospitals nationwide.

Women’s Wellness Care: Since 2015, we have been providing regular cancer screenings and early detection for qualified uninsured and underinsured women to receive cervical cancer and mammography screenings. This program is in partnership with the Colorado Women’s Wellness Care grant. We serve women in Chaffee, western Fremont, Saguache, Custer, western Park, and Lake Counties.

HRRMC clinics in Salida, Buena Vista, Saguache, and Westcliffe provide easy access for healthcare.

We also work directly with Heart of the Rockies Home Health and Hospice.
