Valley View Hospital was originally built in 1955 through a federal post-war program to bring medical services to rural community. The townspeople organized a campaign to raise $340,000 that was matched by the federal government. In this way, the community worked together to provide residents with a nonprofit community hospital. Today, philanthropy continues to play an important role at Valley View. Contributions, both large and small,
- Bring new technology to Valley View, thereby enabling patients to receive important services and treatments locally
- Enhance patient and family rooms to support a healing environment
- Help caregivers receive additional training and mentorship.
As a nonprofit, community-based organization, Valley View Hospital does not receive tax revenues. Charitable contributions therefore play an important role in project funding and create significant savings in long-term financing.
When you give to the Valley View Hospital Foundation, you are supporting strong, local healthcare – both today and in the future.
Why I Give...............
"I just think the things we are able to do for our patients and the time we are given to do them is wonderful. Everyone benefits from the Planetree philosophy."
"To have this quality of a hospital and healthcare in a community this small is amazing and fantastic. We should all support it.."

"We are very fortunate to have a hospital of this caliber in Glenwood Springs. I give to the Valley View Hospital Foundation because I believe that the Lord will take care of you, if you take care of your friends in the community.."
"We spent a summer with a child in a hospital in Denver, so we know what it is like to find a place to stay the night and try to figure out how to keep family members happy at home while you're away. It is so wonderful to have a great hospital like Valley View in our own community.."

"I feel philanthropy isn't about giving; it's about
leaving a legacy. That's why it's so important to choose
the right philanthropy. Our family chooses Valley View
