CT Scanner Campaign

Help us keep healthcare close to home by supporting our campaign to fund the replacement of the CT Scanner at UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center!

The current CT was installed in 2010 and was anticipated to have a useful life of 10 years. Thanks to continued maintenance, the machine continues to function well. However, Siemens, the manufacturer, will stop manufacturing parts for our CT on Dec. 31, 2023 and cannot guarantee they would be able to fix the equipment after that date. For this reason, the Foundation is raising funds for a new CT scanner. For more information click HERE.

New Cribs in Infant Room at GrandKids Child Care Center

Thank you to an anonymous donor for funding the purchase of eight new cribs for our GrandKids Child Care Center infant room! Two of these cribs are specifically designed for emergency situations in which evacuations are necessary and are used during fire drills. These two cribs have larger, stronger wheels to ensure safe travel in variable conditions including snow, rain, and mud. While we hope we never need to use these cribs at their full potential, we are grateful to provide our employee’s families with these updated and safer accommodations.
