UCHealth Urgent Care – Steamboat Resort Now Open03/23/2023 02:39PM ● By UC Health
Steamboat Springs, CO – UCHealth Urgent Care – Steamboat Resort opened March 21, 2023, to provide a convenient option for care at the base of Steamboat Ski Resort.
“Access to health care is important, whether you’re visiting Steamboat Springs or are a full- or part-time resident,” said Sue Golden, certified physician assistant. “This location will allow visitors and locals alike to get the care they need when they need it.”
UCHealth Urgent Care – Steamboat Resort, which is adjacent to Ski Patrol along the pavers in the lowest plaza level of the base area, includes two exam rooms, one procedure room and on-site lab services. Patients can be seen for a variety of minor illnesses and injuries. Conditions may include colds and flu, ear infections, sore throats and coughs, lacerations, sinus infections, respiratory illnesses, urinary tract infections, and sprains and strains, among others. Workers’ compensation injuries can also be seen there.
“Whether a person feels under the weather, sustains an injury while working in the base area or on the mountain, or needs access to care for a different reason, our team is here,” said Casey Homuth, supervisor of both UCHealth urgent care locations in Steamboat Springs. “If it is determined the patient needs imaging or a higher level of care, we can coordinate that care at UCHealth Urgent Care – Steamboat Springs or the emergency department at UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center to make the patient’s experience as seamless as possible.”
YVMC has had a relationship with Ski Patrol at Steamboat Ski Resort for many years, caring for patients on and off the mountain.
“The partnership between the resort and UCHealth is longstanding and an important component to serving our guests and staff,” says Wes Richey, Director of Ski Patrol at Steamboat Ski Resort. “Having an on-site urgent care clinic will take our ability to serve our guests and staff to the next level and provide enhanced world class care at our world class resort.”
The clinic will be open 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. seven days a week through Sunday, April 16. The location will then reopen in the summer, mirroring days of operation to that of Steamboat Resort. No appointment is necessary. If desired, patients can reserve their spot in line online at uchealth.org/steamboatresort and receive a text when it’s time to enter the building. Most insurances are accepted, including Tricare, Colorado Medicaid and Medicare.
