Here is their website Mercy Regional Medical Center; Durango, CO for you to check out.
Also, I forgot to mention the health food store options. There is the Durango Natural Foods Co-op, and Nature's Oasis downtown. Nature's Oasis is about to start building a new store south of downtown which will increase their sq footage immensly. Also, the Farmers Market which happens every weekend of the summer in the First National Bank of Durango parking lot is an awesome opportunity to sample local, organic fare.
I did not say that. I looked at the website. An 82 bed hospital is a small hospital. I stand by what I said, that if you have any special health conditions, you should check out the care available.

Here is the website for the University of Colorado Hospital:

Appreciate the input. No special health needs yet, but one never knows. I hate to have to drive for hours just to get tests done.
The Durango farmer's market sounds great. I am wondering whether the other health food options offer any fresh organic produce through the winter months.
