This fall, Pioneers Medical Center announced that they received the 2024 Joint Replacement Excellence Award™ from Healthgrades, the leading marketplace connecting doctors and patients. This honor ranks Pioneers among the top 10% in the nation for the specialty. Pioneers Medical Center is the only Western Slope provider to earn such an honor. Healthgrades has also recognized the hospital for total knee and hip replacement achievements, reflecting their delivery of the highest quality orthopedic care.
A building’s foundation is constructed over time, piece by piece. The same is true with a charitable organization. Community members have helped lay the groundwork for the Pioneers Healthcare Foundation to achieve our goals. Over time, individual donations from the members of our community have helped us amass the money necessary to fund important healthcare services that Pioneers Medical Center provides to the White River Valley community.
We’re lucky to live in an area that is consistently growing and thriving. However, this also brings additional challenges in our ability to address the rapidly expanding healthcare needs of the region. The cost of providing our services continues to escalate, and PMC’s financial needs are great. Pioneers Healthcare Foundation plays an integral role in raising the money we need, and we can’t do it without the help of our community.
The Pioneers Healthcare Foundation is dedicated to strengthening the availability, affordability and quality of healthcare in Meeker and Rio Blanco County. The organization raises important resources to help:
Capital improvements, such as equipment and facility upgrades, are constant challenges throughout the healthcare industry. Without the ability to make these ongoing upgrades as needed, it becomes extremely difficult for PMC to maintain the exceptional levels of quality care our community deserves. The foundation regularly pursues grant options for many capital investments; however, local matching dollars and other in-kind contributions are often required.
Through the creation of the Pioneers Healthcare Foundation, individuals in our community can support the hospital and its programs under one comprehensive, sustainable organization dedicated to strengthening our community’s healthcare capacity.
Pioneers Healthcare Foundation plays an integral role in funding the new technology at PMC. The foundation was able to secure grant funding to help pay for the following technology upgrades at the hospital:
In addition, funds from the Foundation were used to purchase the vehicle used by the Walbridge Wing. This vehicle helps our long-term care residents participate in day trips around the area, providing important enrichment to the quality of their daily lives.
