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. Make a gift today!

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.


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 our partners.


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.
