When Jeremy was 3 years old he developed a hernia after a bike accident.
His parents quickly brought him to the hospital at Gunnison Valley Health.
Shortly after arriving Jeremy was taken into the OR and his hernia was
successfully repaired. As he lay in a patient room later that evening
a nurse walked in with a special gift; a little brown teddy bear. Jeremy
embraced his new friend and the pain of the recent surgery was momentarily
forgotten, he was able to be a 3-year-old again. That teddy bear remains
on Jeremy's bed to this day. To him, it may be just another stuffed
animal to play with. To his parents, it's an enduring reminder of
the compassionate care their son received.
Stories like Jeremy's happen every day at Gunnison Valley Health. Whether
it is investing in cutting edge technology, nursing education, or little
brown teddy bears, the Gunnison Valley Health Foundation is committed
to providing the support that make those stories possible.
Here at the GVH Foundation we are proud to
partner with multiple organizations to further the health of our community. What
we do wouldn't be possible without the vital support we receive from
events directly benefit the Gunnison Valley Health System. Our
Annual Golf Tournament. Held at the Dios Rios Golf Club in Gunnison, our Annual Golf Tournament
is a great start to the summer season.
Foundation Concert. The Foundation Concert brings the community together for world class music
in a beautiful and intimate setting at the I-Bar Ranch in Gunnison. This
year, we will be hosting Sawyer Brown. In the past we have been pleased
to bring Diamond Rio and Wynonna and the Big Noise to our community.
Taste of Caring. Be indulged by local chefs at our Taste of Caring event. This year, we
will host the event at the new Senior Care Center.
The GVH Foundation organizes, implements, and lends support to multiple
programs that benefit our patients and community. From a renovation of the GVH
Family Birth Center to a new Senior Care Center, we assist with programs
that serve people at every stage of life.
From a complete renovation of the Family Birth Center to a new ambulance
for the Gunnison Valley Health EMS team, the Foundation has quite a list of
accomplishments, and that's just from last year.
