Your Needs and Safety

Spiritual Needs

If you would like to have a representative from the religious denomination of your choice visit, please notify your nurse or the Customer Service Representative and arrangements will be made.

Ethics Committee

The hospital Ethics Committee is available for consultation and discussion of health care issues. The committee serves in a consultative or advisory capacity regarding specific cases and in a consensus developing role. The multi-disciplinary committee (comprised of doctors, nurses, a social worker, a member of the clergy and community members) provides a broad range of perspectives for consideration in order to assist in resolution of issues.

To obtain more information, or to access the Ethics Committee, please contact Administration (970-384-6600) Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., or any member of the Ethics Committee.
