About Valley View
Valley View is an independent, nonprofit health system based in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
Valley View Hospital was built in 1955 with funds raised by the residents of Glenwood Springs and the surrounding communities. Federal funds dedicated to building rural hospitals matched the funds raised. Since that time, Valley View commitment to the health of our community has been a cornerstone of our organization.
What was once a 22,000 square foot, single story hospital with 35-beds is now a thriving regional medical center with a 21-acre medical campus with 78 beds, including an additional 400,000 square feet of advanced hospital and medical offices.
Our integrated network of physician practices, specialty centers and hospital provide multi-disciplinary care across the health spectrum. Valley View HealthCare, located in Eagle, Silt and Willits, make it easy for patients to get the care they need close to home.
The availability of neurosurgery, a comprehensive cancer center, and interventional cardiology in our state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization laboratories enables residents to stay local for both planned and emergent care. Valley View also attracts destination health visitors who recognize the significance of the healing atmosphere both Valley View and Glenwood Springs provide.
Valley View has been recognized for performance excellence from Healthgrades, J.D. Power & Associates, Truven Health “Top 100 Hospitals”, Survey Vitals and Consumer Reports.
