Emergency Department

Gunnison Valley Health’s Emergency Department is located at the hospital off Denver and Iowa Streets in Gunnison (behind City Market & Meadows Shopping Center). Emergency Drop-Off Parking is located directly outside the Emergency Entrance.

Gunnison Valley Hospital is a Level IV Trauma Center. Local physicians staff the emergency room (ER) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. General surgery, orthopedic, and OB/GYN physicians are available on an on-call basis. The ER department is supplied with the advanced equipment necessary to meet the demands of any patient with ailments ranging from bronchitis to multi-system trauma.

The Emergency Department features Colorado Neurological Institute's CO-DOC Telemedicine Unit.

This secure connection allows the neurologist to provide real-time acute stroke consultations–a critical service when literally every second counts.
