Our Team

The staff at Gunnison Valley Health are a healthcare team consisting of specialists, surgeons, physician's assistants, hospitalists, nursing staff, technicians, and technologists. Our team works in conjunction with various local family practice physicians from multiple offices.

Our dedicated team will make sure that you are comfortable and well-informed throughout your stay.

Patient Meals

A member of our culinary staff will visit with you prior to each meal to take your order based on a physician dietary order. If you miss a meal because of tests or treatment, your nurse can arrange for it to be delivered on your return.

Visiting Hours

We have no defined visiting hours. We appreciate the important role your family and loved ones play in your care and the healing process. For the comfort of other patients, we ask that you limit the number of visitors and hours at which you have visitors. We reserve the right to restrict visitation due to policy. A copy of this policy is available upon request.

Pediatric Distraction Toolkit

We know medical procedures can be daunting, especially for children. To support our youngest patients, our nursing team have created a pediatric distraction toolkit designed to make your child more comfortable during their hospital stay. The toolkit is customized to suit your child's interests but does include:

  • Virtual reality goggles - that allows your child to visit magical places like a world of Legos and outer space.
  • iPads - loaded with lots of games.
  • Toys, books and puzzles

For those children who do need a needle, our hospital uses a needle-free injection system call J-Tip, This system uses CO2 gas to administer a numbing agent prior to placing an IV or withdrawing blood. With the J-Tip combined with the virtual reality googles, we aim to minimize your child's fear and make them as comfortable as possible.
