Who We Are & Where We Serve

The Grand County Rural Health Network is a nonprofit organization that services both Grand and Jackson counties in CO. Our dedicated staff works in partnership with health providers, businesses, and community members to improve the future of health in our community. We believe everyone has the right to health care and to understand how to access that care. We also understand that health is more than health care. We work to educate our neighbors and help them navigate the system to ensure they have the information and services they need to live their healthiest lives.

We work in partnership to advocate for and support the health of our community.
Our Vision: Everyone in our community has what they need to THRIVE and BE HEALTHY.
Our Values: Empower • Integrity • Equity • Leadership • Educating • Caring

Our Goals

Long-term Outcome:

By 2023, everyone in our community has access to affordable, comprehensive health and human services, which are easy to navigate when, where and how needed.

Goals:

  1. Ensure centralized services exist, including virtual or physical locations.
