Your Gifts at Work

 You make possibilities a reality

On behalf of the Yampa Valley Medical Center Foundation, our heartfelt thank you


The Yampa Valley Medical Center Foundation is a non-profit organization which supports programs and services of Yampa Valley Medical Center. In partnership with the hospital, our mission is to raise money for YVMC. Our excellent quality hospital is here, in part, because of your support.

THANK YOU donors, sponsors and those who have made pledges and planned gifts to the Foundation. Since its establishment in 2001, we have raised over $17 million. Every dollar makes a difference in our ability to make improvements to services, purchase state of the art technology, provide educational scholarships and maintain the high standards of our facility. We can all be proud of the fact this is available here in Northwest Colorado.

Your support helps provide award-winning patient care well above the national standards for a regional healthcare center. Your gifts ensure that our entire community has access to quality healthcare for generations to come.
