UCHealth Urgent Care and UCHealth Occupational Medicine are now open at 1600 Mid Valley Drive in Steamboat Springs.
“UCHealth and Yampa Valley Medical Center are there for the Steamboat Springs community and we are excited to bring these services to a new location,” said Soniya Fidler, president of UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center. “Emergency Care is a new service offering for YVMC and allows us to provide additional levels of care to locals and visitors as we continue to work to reduce health care costs for everyone.”
The new location consists of seven examination rooms that are used for both urgent and occupational medical patients. Laboratory and X-ray services are on-site, and any additional imaging needs and services for patients are available in the hospital.
Advanced practice providers, nurses, medical assistants and technicians care for patients with illnesses or minor injuries that do not warrant a trip to the emergency room but are too important to wait for an appointment at primary care.
“A number of employees who previously worked at the site have accepted positions with UCHealth, both in emergency care, occupational medicine and hospital settings, and we have hired others,” said Ryan Larson, director of clinical operations at YVMC . “Patients can be sure that their health is in good hands.”
