Northwest Colorado Health supports community wellness through a range of health programs and services helping residents of all ages, income levels and cultures live as healthy as possible. Northwest Colorado Health (formerly Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association) was established in 1964 as a Home Health and Public Health agency in Routt and Moffat counties. We have grown significantly over the decades, expanding our services to include primary care at Community Health Centers in Steamboat Springs and Craig, a wide range of Public Health programs in Routt, Moffat and Jackson counties and Home Health and Hospice services in Routt, Moffat and Grand counties. In addition to our Community Health Centers, we operate The Haven Assisted Living Facility and Community Center in Hayden and the Rollingstone Respite House in Steamboat Springs.
Access to health is everyone's right
Regardless of their income, race, age, gender, health status, or insurance coverage, everyone deserves the chance to be healthy and well. No one should be denied the opportunity to see a doctor, receive healthcare, or participate in preventive health programs.
We focus on health, not just healthcare
Health and wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do at Northwest Colorado Health. Through our proactive, preventive programs and services, we strive to help people stay healthy and well. While we do treat illness and injury, our goal is for every member of our community to be empowered with the information, tools, and resources they need to live a healthy life.
Compassionate, personalized care improves outcomes
How we deliver healthcare makes a difference to our patients and their health results. We treat everyone with compassion, integrity, and the utmost respect. We take the time to really understand every patient’s situation and never pass judgment. By meeting patients where they are with kindness and empathy, we serve as their partners on their health journey.
We deliver only the highest quality programs and services
We take great pride in providing the most advanced and effective programs and services. We hold ourselves to the highest standards to ensure our patients receive exceptional care. As a non-profit organization, we always focus on providing what is best for each patient rather than what makes the most money.
We lead by example
Every day, we strive to model the healthy behaviors we promote to our patients. From eating well and exercising to preventative screenings and regular check-ups, we practice what we preach.
