Family Health West, located in Fruita, Colorado, has remained on the leading edge of rural health care service delivery for over 60 years. The 20-bed hospital was a result of a community effort in the mid-1940s to provide health care for residents of rural Mesa County in Western Colorado. Today, Family Health West has over 350 employees serving over 245 patients. As a nonprofit provider, 80% of the clientele are predominately low-income, Medicaid or Medicare patients. Being the area’s premier provider of Alzheimer’s and elder care since the mid-1980s, the goal is to continue to develop and provide state-of-the-art programs for our patients resulting in a higher quality of life.
