  • Category: COVID
  • Posted On:

At Gunnison Valley Health, we have been closely watching the current surge of COVID-19 in our community. We are doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of every person in the Gunnison Valley, it’s our top priority.

With that in mind, we have several safety updates to share.

Changes to the Gunnison Valley Health Visitor Policy

As of Friday, January 7, 2022, there are NO visitors allowed for inpatient or outpatient settings. We believe this is a necessary decision, but also understand how difficult it is for our patients. We will evaluate the current climate on a weekly basis and will make changes to this policy as soon as we are safely able to do so.

No visitors/ partners/ accompanying family will be allowed for outpatient visits and they will be instructed to wait in their cars.

All visitors must wear their own personal mask or one will be provided for them upon arrival. All visitors will be screened for symptoms of COVID-19 and perform hand hygiene before being allowed to enter. If a visitor shows signs or symptoms of COVID-19, they will NOT be allowed to enter the building unless they are seeking care.

Exceptions to this policy may include:

  • End-of-life situations
  • Minors may be accompanied by ONE parent/guardian
  • Family Birth Center patients may have ONE support person
  • Surgical patients are required to have one visitor who will accompany the patient home after surgery
  • An exception approved by the physician managing the patient’s care

GVH CEO Meet and Greet Events Postponed

We have made the difficult decision to postpone the CEO Meet and Greets scheduled for January 10 in Crested Butte and January 12 in Gunnison. Gunnison Valley Health CEO Jason Amrich is excited to meet with the community and wants to ensure that can happen in a safe environment. We will be rescheduling both events, tentatively, for some time in February.

We will continue to monitor all other scheduled events and make decisions about each closer to their scheduled date and based on the current COVID situation.

Monoclonal Antibody Treatment

We are currently unable to provide monoclonal antibody treatment, our stock has been depleted. We have ordered additional doses, but are unsure of an exact arrival date. In the interim, you can visit to find a list of other locations offering treatment and State-sponsored treatment locations.

We would like to thank the community for their continued patience and support as we navigate this unpredictable time. We remain committed to ensuring that you have quality healthcare close to home.
