A Message from the Executive DirectorJenny-Birnie

I am pleased to share with you the new Gunnison Valley Health (GVH) Foundation Strategic Plan that will serve as our guiding document through 2025.

Through our strategic planning process, we identified strategies that will enable the GVH Foundation to advance its mission. We are committed to measurable goals and priorities for implementation and believe this document will be the cornerstone of our future success.

Our priority includes the development and stewardship of philanthropic resources in support of GVH’s mission. Additionally, we serve as ambassadors for our healthcare system and generate community awareness of GVH programs and services. In order to accomplish this, five strategic priorities have been identified to drive the strategic plan forward:

  1. Increased Visibility of Gunnison Valley Health and Foundation
  2. Secure philanthropic funds to ensure excellence of service
  3. Prioritize Behavioral health initiatives
  4. Adoption of strong development practices
  5. Solid Operating plan demonstrating nonprofit excellence

The Strategic Plan is an inspirational plan that will bring together our staff, Board of Directors, community partners and key stakeholders toward the common goal of supporting GVH to provide the most comprehensive and high quality patient care that will deliver results that promote lifelong health and wellness for our community. The role of the Foundation is critical to the ongoing success of GVH and we are excited to support the future of this innovative, award winning healthcare system.

Most Sincerely,

Jenny Birnie, M.S.W.

Executive Director
