Gunnison Valley Hospital

Emergency Medical Services - EMS

Gunnison Valley Hospital is very grateful to the men and women of our award winning and nationally renowned EMS Department. They continue to provide an outstanding service to our community. We are not alone in acknowledging the efforts put forward by this group of devoted people.

The GVH-EMS Department covers an area of nearly twice the size of the State of Delaware. Because of our location they are trained to deal with a vast array of emergencies. Whether it is rappeling, responding on horseback, snowcat, snowmobile or ATV, our highly trained men and women make it their mission to provide the care needed for any situation.

Our Emergency Medical Technicians work with various local, regional, state and federal agencies to provide first response education. Visitors and residents are provided with the utmost medical care when an emergency arises in our outlying areas.

Several flight programs compliment Gunnison Valley Hospital EMS service with helicopter "med-evac" service in major trauma situations.
