A Message from the Executive DirectorJenny-Birnie

I am pleased to share 2019/20 Gunnison Valley Health Foundation Report with all of our supporters and community members. I hope you will enjoy reading about our many accomplishments and the new and innovative services that are being offered in response to the needs of our community.

The past year has brought extraordinary challenges as well as new opportunities to serve the Gunnison Valley in its time of need. Thanks to the outpouring of support we have received from so many, we remain well-equipped to meet the growing demands of this pandemic. We couldn’t face this current health emergency without our entire community behind us.

Gunnison Valley Health’s deep commitment to collaboration has been witnessed on multiple occasions as we brought together stakeholders to deliver innovative solutions related to COVID-19. These collaborations have resulted in guiding our local school system with safe sanitation measures, development of testing protocols for Western Colorado University and coordinating all COVID-19 testing and processing county wide.

Additionally, Gunnison Valley Health is a leader in the State of Colorado and consistently has been called upon to share COVID-19 employee health policies. A comprehensive operations plan was developed that made it possible to be the first hospital in the state to resume outpatient elective surgeries.

Gunnison Valley Health is comprised of a dedicated and compassionate group of health care professionals focused on delivering patient results and committed to quality care. It is truly an honor to work for an organization that leads with integrity and employs people who are dedicated to providing extraordinary care to the members of our community.

With Gratitude,

Jenny Birnie, M.S.W.

Executive Director
