In 2007, the residents of Moffat County approved a mill levy that allowed The Memorial Hospital to spend nearly $43 million to construct an 80,000-square-foot facility with 25 private rooms on 15 acres west of Shadow Mountain Village. This state-of-the-art facility is expected to draw highly qualified medical professionals to Moffat County and to expand the scope of medical services offered. The hospital is owned by the people of Moffat County and operates as a not-for-profit entity. The hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art cardiac monitoring and resuscitation equipment. Laboratory and radiology departments, obstetrics and surgical capabilities allow patients to complete routine procedures, same-day surgery and emergency services.
