Between 2010—late 2013 the Telluride Medical Center Foundation played an instrumental role in assisting the Tri-County Health Network acquire operating grants, as their fiscal intermediary. We’re proud of that collaboration.

Expanded capability to analyze blood for Beta HCG levels and lactate levels.
