In 2002, our community recognized the need for providing quality care in the home. As a result, SummitWest Care was developed as a non-profit, free-standing homecare provider. SummitWest Care was designed to serve people in need of homecare who did not know how to get the help they deserved. Since our inception, SummitWest Care has served thousands of clients and families in Mesa County and have had the support and donations from organizations such as St. Mary’s Hospital, Rocky Mountain Health Plans and Hilltop.
Because of our strong staff expertise and leadership and the profound belief that people deserve to heal at home, we have received several awards for quality and excellence in home healthcare service.
Our clinicians have a long history of collaboration with area physicians to help their clients get well after premature birth, complicated orthopedic surgeries and chronic illnesses. We value education and staying on the cutting edge of procedures and techniques and strive to support our clinicians with the latest technology and telehealth systems to help stay on top of all your healthcare needs.
A message from our CEO
It is my honor to welcome you to SummitWest Care. For the last 20 years, SummitWest Care (formerly known as Home Care of the Grand Valley) has provided quality medical and non-medical services to Grand Junction and surrounding areas. Within the last 5 years, our agency has experienced exponential growth in programs, services, location and staffing to better serve our community. As a Grand Junction native, the Western Slope holds a special place in my heart which is why I have made it my mission to grow and expand our services to ultimately help more people remain safely in their homes.
Our approach to care is holistic, meaning our goal is to care for the client as a whole, taking into account their individual needs, goals, social and mental factors to not only heal and maintain their disease, but to better their overall wellbeing. We will make sure that you or your loved one will remain at home safely and independently with the tools and resources needed to thrive, in any stage of life.
When it comes to finding the best place to be, home is always the answer. At SummitWest Care, we are committed to providing you and/or your loved one with quality, compassionate care. Please reach out to us with any questions you may have. Our highly trained, compassionate team is here for you.
