UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center to donate $1 million

Nov 19, 2018 | Uncategorized

Old Town Hot Springs (OTHS) is pleased to share that Yampa Valley Medical Center (YVMC), now part of the UCHealth family is donating $1 million to the OTHS capital campaign as part of a 10 year partnership between the two independent nonprofits. The donation comes from the contribution UCHealth made to Yampa Valley Medical Center Foundation (YVMCF) when the two organizations came together in 2017.

“This generous donation by UCHealth provides a crucial and far-reaching investment into the health and wellness of our community and will bring expanded programming, amenities and resources to our stakeholders, including youth, seniors, non-profit partners and of course, a large majority of the residents of Steamboat Springs,” said OTHS Executive Director, Stephanie Orozco. “We are excited to work with UCHealth over the coming months to maximize this partnership in order to bring the most value to the community.”

Thanks to the partnership, patients, OTHS members and community members will have access to targeted programming including nutrition and healthy lifestyle education, onsite physical therapy and aquatic therapy at OTHS, use of the indoor walking track for rehabilitation and more. YVMC’s donation will also benefit the dozens of classes and programs already provided by OTHS.
