CRAIG — The effort to raise $1 million to build a new medical office building in Craig received a big boost after the Memorial Regional Health Foundation secured a $500,000 grant from the Colorado Health Foundation.

"The MRH Foundation is excited to obtain this grant funding and to develop a partnership with the Colorado Health Foundation.  This grant will provide the necessary resources to provide for the construction of the new medical office building and to enhance the hospital's capacity to provide quality healthcare to our patients,” said MRH Foundation Director Eva Peroulis.

The grant is part of the Colorado Health Foundation's Strengthening Primary Care program. It is designed to increase the number of Coloradans receiving quality primary care services and provides grants for physical and information technology infrastructure, as well as working capital related to expansion or improvements to care delivery.

"We appreciate the Colorado Health Foundation's assistance and support for our new medical office building,” said MRH CEO Andy Daniels.

The new medical office building will be constructed adjacent to the hospital.

“The new medical office building will accommodate the consolidation of services currently located in different parts of the city.  MRH will improve the quality of primary care delivered through redesigned spaces for better team-based care. Health access and improved healthcare delivery will be improved through a new more efficient medical office building," Daniels said.
