About Us

Our patients are #1!


Yampa Valley Medical Center is a non-profit, non-tax-supported, independent community hospital. We are dedicated to serving the needs of residents throughout northwest Colorado and visitors from around the world. YVMC is a 39-bed acute-care hospital providing sophisticated medical services to more than 51,000 outpatients annually.

YVMC was founded in 1946. From dedicating the former Routt County Memorial Hospital in 1950, to opening the present campus in 1999, to guiding our 2008-2010 expansion, Yampa Valley Medical Center has continued to grow as the needs of our community have expanded.

The two major building additions and a series of internal remodeling projects were completed in 2010 at a cost of $13 million. We added 32,000 square feet for the Family Birth Place and Surgical Services. Both areas have experienced steady growth since we opened our doors at our current campus in 1999.

On our campus you’ll find an accredited, full-service acute care hospital including emergency care, surgical services and the Family Birth Place with a Special Care Nursery. We also provide comprehensive therapy and rehabilitation services; a skilled nursing facility offering long-term care and short-term rehabilitation stays.

Yampa Valley Medical Center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization led by a Board of Directors representing our community. We receive philanthropic support from the Healthcare Foundation for the Yampa Valley. Visit any of these web pages to find out more about YVMC:
