Hospital District Withdraws Wetland Permit

For Immediate Release:

Hospital District Withdraws Wetland Permit, Still Determined to Find Future Home for Health Care October 31, 2016 (Telluride, CO) – After a process spanning more than 18 months, the Telluride Hospital District, upon consultation with the Town of Mountain Village, has withdrawn its wetlands permit application to the United States Army Corps of Engineers and will begin anew the search for a future home for the region’s healthcare.

If granted, the permit would have allowed the hospital district to impact and mitigate 0.44 acres of wetlands in Mountain Village for a new medical facility to replace the Telluride Regional Medical Center.

In August, the Army Corps mandated extensive additional requirements of the hospital district to continue with the application. The hospital district’s request for an extension to comply was declined and the district was unable to fully address the extent of the requests by the October 15 deadline.

“These requirements would be costly and time-consuming with no assurance that all of Army Corps’ informational needs would be fulfilled,” said Telluride Regional Medical Center CEO John Gardner.

“Consequently, the board of the Telluride Hospital District, in consultation with the Mountain Village officials, has decided to end the application process.”

Telluride Regional Medical Center provides the highest quality, comprehensive Primary Care and exceptional Emergency / Trauma Services. Since 1978 the medical center has evolved, wherever possible, right along with complex healthcare technologies and population growth while remaining within the 10,000-square-foot remodeled residential building, built in the 1960s.

Currently, the Telluride Hospital District is working towards building a new facility which will serve the needs of the Telluride region today, tomorrow and fifty years into the future.
