Building our Future – Capital Campaign for New Medical Office Building
MRH has grown in size and scope in recent years, and it’s time that the facility grows with it. Services now include a state-of-the-art hospital, multi-specialty medical clinic with a satellite clinic in Steamboat Springs, rehabilitation services, growing orthopaedic services, home health and soon, hospice care.
The MRH Board’s approval of the new MRH Medical Office Building is in line with the health system’s mission to improve the quality of life for the communities we serve through patient-centered healthcare and service excellence.
Memorial Regional Health continues to grow our services. In order to keep up with the demands of our patients and stay current with healthcare trends and technologies, a better-designed space is needed. Bringing all services under one roof makes care much more convenient and efficient for patients.
The current clinic building was built in 1949 and the cost to make repairs, bring it up to code, reconfigure for current technologies and add efficiencies exceeds the cost of building something new. The Board of Trustees went through an extensive Master Site Planning process that involved all of the buildings and properties owned and operated by Memorial Regional Health. After review of the current medical clinic it became crystal clear that it has reached the end of its life. After much consideration, the Board decided, to best meet the needs of our patients, we need to build a new 3-story medical office building adjacent to the hospital.
What the New MOB will mean for patients
The new MOB will mean not only convenience—patients will be able to do all of this in one stop, saving time and frustration—it will also mean enhanced care through improved coordination between providers. For example, an orthopaedic doctor will be able to easily walk down the hall to speak with the patient’s physical therapist to make decisions together on care. Having all providers in one place means more coordinated care, more efficient care,and more effective care.
Some of the planned enhancements include:
The rehab center will be housed on the first floor of the medical office building for easy access, with state-of-the-art equipment.
A new cardiac rehab center will be close to the cardiology clinic, where the cardiologist will be close at hand.
The new infusion center will be a more comfortable and inviting space, a place that encourages and accommodates family members or friends to sit with their loved ones.

Your help can make it happen
The purpose of a Capital Campaign is to raise $1,000,000 dollars within the community to help fund construction of the new medical facility. This capital campaign is the single most important aspect of raising money for the new clinic for the following reasons:
- When the health system applies for grants, it shows community support and commitment to the project, resulting in increased grant funding.
- We are investing in the healthcare needs of our future and our family’s future. We are investing in the medical community by providing a state-of-the-art medical facility that will continue delivering quality healthcare services to patients.
All donations qualify for a charitable income tax deduction and Colorado Enterprise Zone tax credit – the State of Colorado allows a 25% tax credit on your state income taxes. Ground breaking for the new MRH Medical Office Building will begin Spring of 2018 and completion is expected late Spring of 2019.
The Memorial Regional Health Foundation’s Capital Campaign is seeking pledges over a three-year period. We can provide a gift plan for your review. To express our thanks, your name will be included on a donor recognition wall in the new MRH Medical Office Building. Donor names will be engraved on a “Tree of Health” with gold, silver and bronze leaves.
