2018 marks the fortieth anniversary for the Telluride Regional Medical Center!


Medical Center Celebrates Their 40th Anniversary

Since summer of 1978, our clinic has evolved, wherever possible, along with complex healthcare technologies and population growth while remaining within the 1960s era building.

Have a Memory of the Telluride Medical Center?

We’ve housed a lot of memories over the past 40 years. Got a story to tell? We’d love to hear it — share it with us here!


In 1978, the James Terry Gardiner Memorial Clinic, operated by Mountain Medical Services, opened its doors, utilizing the renovated former Idarado miner’s clinic (on the corner of Pacific Ave. and Townsend St.) to offer round-the-clock medical care, an emergency room and two beds for overnight patients.

Today, as the Telluride Regional Medical Center we offer primary care 6-days a week and provide the region’s only 24-hour Level V Trauma Center. All emergency and primary care services are provided by Board Certified Physicians, Registered Nurses and Radiological Technologists.

We are recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance as a Patient-Centered Medical Home for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term, participative relationships.

Our services include everything from prenatal care, radiology and behavioral health services, osteopathic manipulative medicine, plus many other services typically only offered at larger hospitals.

Check back soon for more anniversary information and celebratory events.
