About Us

Community Hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado, is a full-service, acute-care hospital licensed for 60 beds. As part of the Colorado West Healthcare System, we are a Level III Trauma Center that offers full outpatient diagnostic services and inpatient care for the Western Slope region of Colorado, and eastern Utah. Community Hospital brings together expert staff and world-class technology in a healing, family-centered environment.

We provide a full range of medical services, including inpatient and outpatient surgery, and emergency care. We have comprehensive diagnostic capabilities: state-of-the-art ultrasound, CT (Philips Ingenuity 128 MDCT), digital mammography and cardiac testing. Community Hospital proudly partners with University of Utah Heath Care and Huntsman Cancer Institute to provide world-class medical and radiation oncology treatment right here at home.

Community Hospital is Joint Commission accredited. Our laboratory is College of American Pathologists-accredited. For those lab tests that we don’t conduct on site, the Mayo Clinic is our exclusive partner for reference laboratory services.

We pride ourselves on delivering personalized care to our patients, and in working closely with our medical-care providers in treating the whole person. This approach has resonated with our patients, and we are growing to meet our community’s demand.

On October 15th, 2014, Community Hospital broke ground on a new four-story, 140,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility. Our NEW hospital opened Thursday, March 17th, 2016!
