GUNNISON VALLEY HOSPITAL RECOGNIZED AS TOP 100 CRITICAL ACCESS HOSPITAL IN AMERICA 2nd YEAR IN A ROW


















Gunnison Valley Hospital once again qualifies as one of the country’s Top 100 rural hospitals.  A total of 1331 hospitals throughout the United States are designated as critical access facilities. There are 29 Critical Access Hospitals in the state of Colorado and Gunnison Valley Hospital made the list for second year in a row.  

Rural hospitals provide a safety net of emergency, primary and specialty care in smaller, more isolated communities. To qualify as critical access, a facility must be located either more than 35 miles from the nearest hospital or more than 15 miles in areas with mountainous terrain. Each year, more than 62 million Americans rely on the essential services provided by rural hospitals.

In 2012 Gunnison and Aspen Valley hospitals made the Top 100 list for performance scores in the Hospital Strength Index™ by iVantage Health Analytics’.  In 2013, Heart of the Rockies Medical Center in Salida, and Southwest Memorial Hospital in Cortez joined with Gunnison Valley Hospital and Aspen Valley Hospital for top honors.  Among the four recognized in 2013, Gunnison is the only one that does not receive some form of tax support.
