Grand River Health is a Special Tax District, formed by the citizens of Western Garfield County in 1961 to serve the area’s healthcare needs. Founded as Claggett Memorial Hospital, the new Grand River Medical Center prides itself on being a high-quality healthcare facility, staffed by top-notch professionals. The district has grown over the years and now includes: Grand River Hospital and Medical Center, E. Dene Moore Care Center, and Clinic West (Battlement Mesa).
In summer 2009, they opened a new medical office building expansion in Rifle, which added approximately 70,000 square feet of space to the Grand River Medical Center campus. The expansion houses a new clinic space for Family Health, Women’s Health, Internal Medicine, and Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy.
In 2017 voters passed an $89.4 million bond initiative that will allow for expansion and construction of a new Care Center and Hospital Expansion. Both of these projects are expected to be complete by mid-2021.
Their mission is to improve the health and well-being of their communities.
