Relationship-based medicine makes Pioneers unique.
Our providers and staff get to know each patient as an individual and are truly committed to their wellness. In fact, 85% of people listed Pioneers as “exceeding expectations” when it comes to the concern for the ongoing health of our community. Our team includes 140 employed professionals; 2 surgeons (including new orthopedic services available this fall); visiting specialists; a full-service family health center for pediatric care, chronic illness management, preventative medicine and cosmetic procedures; and the only 24/7 emergency department within a 40-mile radius.
Pioneers Medical Center was built with YOU in mind.
Features of the expanded Pioneers Medical Center include private, ADA-accessible and flexible rooms; “swing bed” services for transitional/recovery care; comfortable beds and a lift machine to support large or frail patients; new technology for isolating infections and dealing with hazardous materials; collaborative, on-site infusion services and cancer support; a redesigned therapy room with kitchen and self-care learning areas; and a new children’s waiting area and pediatric-specific exam rooms at the Meeker Family Health Center. We continue to be federally certified as a Provider-Based Colorado Rural Health Clinic and accept most insurances!
You deserve – and will receive – our best.
