The Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center (HRRMC) Auxiliary recently funded several pieces of equipment for HRRMC and the Buena Vista Health Center.

The Auxiliary raised a total of $10,000 to purchase vital equipment, including a specialized wheelchair, breathalyzer, imaging equipment, a leg press machine for inpatient rehabilitation and patient walkers, and equipment for the HRRCM Cancer Wellness Program.

Funds are raised through the HRRMC Gift Shop and other fundraisers organized by the Auxiliary.

“The HRRMC Auxiliary has been a strong supporter of the hospital since the 1960s. They generously donate profits from their Gift Shop sales and fundraisers to HRRMC through these equipment purchases and annual scholarships to college students majoring in the healthcare field,” said Lezlie Burkley, HRRMC Foundation Director and liaison to the HRRMC Auxiliary.

Also at this time, the HRRMC Auxiliary is welcoming new volunteers to their program to work in the HRRMC Gift Shop, as well as to help support inpatient Occupational Therapy programs. If interested in joining, contact Lezlie Burkley at 719-530-2218 or
