Telluride Regional Med Center: May Health Month & National Mental Health Awareness Month!

The Telluride Regional Medical Center (TRMC) puts out the word: May is Health Month, also National Mental Health Month.

Go here for more about the Telluride Regional Medical Center (back to 2009).

The following is a note from Dr. Sharon Grundy, Primary Care Medical Director at TRMC.

Dr. Sharon Grundy,Primary Care Medical Director,
Telluride Medical Center.

As the Primary Care Medical Director at Telluride Medical Center, I have the privilege of being at the frontline of community health. We believe that prevention is the foundation of wellness. Our providers recommend annual well visits for all age groups to strengthen the Patient-Provider relationship and develop a comprehensive individual health plan.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic, fewer than half of our patients are coming in for their annual well exam. The goal of those visits is to set aside time to take care of an individual outside of acute or chronic problems. These appointments are designed for individual risk assessment for cardiovascular risk, cancer risk, skin checks, weight assessment. Heart disease remains the #1 cause of death in the U.S., and early detection through regular screenings is key to prevention and management.

Come in and see us at the TRMC to create your individualized health plan based on your family history, age and lifestyle.

Here’s what we’re offering to make it easier for you to stay on top of your health and wellness:

• Annual wellness exams: Available for $175 or less. Ideal for restaurant workers, hospitality staff, and anyone uninsured or underinsured. This includes corresponding blood work.
Additional appointment times throughout May to make extra time to see our local patients when town is quieter.
• We have further financial assistance available through partnerships with the Telluride Medical Center Foundation and San Miguel County Public Health.
• You can book with with Dr. Gaylord this month. Andrew Brown, PA, Emily McGough, NP, and Dr. Anna Turner are accepting new patients.
• We have certified interpreters available to assist in Spanish.

Don’t miss this opportunity to take care of your health this month. Call 970.728.3848 to schedule your appointment. We’re ready to assist you in both English and Spanish.

Here’s to a healthier you!
