The COVID-19 Support Fund
We are sailing in uncharted waters these days with the COVID-19 crisis.
Life as normal for all of us has dramatically changed with so many businesses
and schools closed. The Gunnison Valley Health Team has been taking every
possible step in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We take seriously
our commitment to the care and safety of our patients, our staff and our
community, and we are working to be sure we are as prepared as possible
to meet their needs.
A number of people have contacted us to ask how they can support our Coronavirus-related
work. Whether it’s through volunteer efforts in the county call
center, delivering meals to our senior community, making non-surgical
masks for our non-clinical staff or making a financial contribution, every
effort helps our community.
The COVID-19 Support Fund will provide critical support to your health
care system during the COVID-19 pandemic. The fund will be used to ensure
Gunnison Valley Health’s medical team has the essential lifesaving
equipment (including respirators, ventilators, oxygen flow machines and
high-tech ultraviolet light infection eradication), technology and support
they need to provide the best possible care and safety for themselves
and our patients. As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, needs are
increasing and changing on a daily basis. The COVID-19 Support Fund is
designed to ensure our community is well equipped with the resources we
need for months to come. Your donation will make a difference.

A bear hug means so much...
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.
