WMRHA works to create change in ways that include all voices and engages all stakeholders to build a stronger health system within Eagle, Garfield, and Pitkin counties. We envision that all West Mountain residents, especially vulnerable populations, have equal access to high quality, comprehensive, integrated, and cost-effective healthcare services needed for optimal health.
"Quality Health Network (QHN) and WMRHA have been partnering since 2016, which was the beginning of the Accountable Health Communities Model (AHCM) Project. The AHCM Project was to bring Social Determinant of Health Screenings to our communities. QHN provided the technologies, known as the Community Resource Network (CRN) for this project. QHN and WMRHA continue to partner together with our initiatives, Valley Alliance to End Homelessness and Mountain Coalition for Food and Nutrition Security. Our goal and our partnership is to bring a true community connected system to our communities."
Sherri Corey, WMRHA Board Chair, & QHN Director of Community Relations
"What makes WMRHA unique, important, and relevant is the ability of all our stakeholders to come together to solve community issues. WMRHA represents our communities best effort in convening and collaborating."
Chris McDowell, WMRHA Former Board Chair, & Valley Health Alliance Executive Director
"WMRHA has been an instrumental organization to this community to help agencies address the Social Determinants of Health. Specifically, at AVH, WMRHA has assisted with the implementation of screening tools in the hospital. In the community, WMRHA is taking the lead to address the biggest issue that is facing the community: housing. Through its leadership, the community is looking at approaches to supportive housing. I appreciate all they do for AVH and this valley!"
