St. Mary's Hospital is dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs of the residents of western Colorado and eastern Utah.
A not-for-profit organization, St. Mary's Hospital was founded in 1896 by the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth. The small, wood-framed building, that stood over 100 years ago, offered only 10 beds. Today, St. Mary's Hospital is the largest medical center between Denver and Salt Lake City, and boasts over 350 beds.
Approximately 2,000 staff and 300 active physicians, representing more than 40 specialties, provide the high-level and compassionate care. Approximately 700 volunteers support the staff, donating more than 150,000 hours of service each year. It's truly big city medicine in a quaint, small town setting.
St. Mary's Hospital is fully accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations, the American Medical Association Council on Medical Education, the Colorado Medical Society, and the American Association of Blood Banks.
St. Mary's is dedicated to providing specialized services, experienced professionals, and the latest in techniques and technology close to home for the people of western Colorado and eastern Utah.

Grand Junction, Colorado:
Grand Junction is truly the best kept secret in Colorado. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, and close proximity to Colorado's most treasured mountain towns, western Colorado offers a high quality of life, and low cost of living in a small town setting. Grand Junction is nestled between the Bookcliff Mountains the Grand Mesa, and the Colorado National Monument, and is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. We're known most for our mounting biking, but also offers gold medal fly fishing, trail running, hiking, hunting, rafting, and a number of other outside activities.
With very little crime and multiple options for private, public, and charter schools, Grand Junction is a great place to raise a family. Colorado Mesa University is also based in Grand Junction and features several undergraduate and graduate education programs.
