Monday Medical: New names, familiar faces

Susan Cunningham For Steamboat Today

If you call YampaCare for Women today, you'll likely hear office assistant Heather Richey's cheerful voice answer.

Beginning Oct. 2, Richey will still be answering your call but don't be surprised to hear her answer with a new practice name: UCHealth Women's Care Clinic.

As part of the UCHealth family, names of Yampa Valley Medical Center departments and practices are changing. Don't let the name changes throw you for a loop: the staff members at the front desk, the nurses who care for you and the doctors you've come to trust remain the same.

Facility and department names are now very specific to the service provided. For instance, YampaCare Cardiology will be called UCHealth Heart and Vascular Clinic.

Also starting Oct. 2, UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center will have a new online experience. The hospital's website will be exclusively a part of UCHealth's website. You'll still be able to access My Chart for information about services at YVMC and pay your bill online, but you'll access that through UCHealth's website.

Phone numbers haven't changed through the transition, so if you have your doctor's office programmed into your phone, you can leave the number as is.
