In 2008, the Telluride Foundation met with the regional healthcare leaders to define and discuss opportunities to enhance local healthcare in San Miguel, Montrose & Ouray Counties by integrating healthcare services. Through a series of meetings, discussions and collective interests, Tri-County Health Network (TCHNetwork) was formed.
Incorporated in late 2010 as a 501(c)3 supporting organization of the Telluride Foundation, the TCHNetwork is a vertical network of providers committed to improving the quality and coordination of health in our tri-county area by increasing access to healthcare and health services at lower costs.
Network Members have extensive experience in working on healthcare issues as they are the major healthcare stakeholders within our rural remote tri-county region.
TCHNetwork is improving the overall health of our rural region by identifying, developing and operating Community Programs focused on quality and in reducing costs to increase access to care in our region. These Programs have been hugely successful in filling the void of access to healthcare by assuring care is accessible, affordable and available to populations living in our rural counties.
