YVMC selects general contractor for big expansion project
Yampa Valley Medical Center has taken another big step toward a planned summer expansion.
The hospital on Monday announced it has selected Haselden Construction as general contractor for the $14.5 million expansion and renovation project that is scheduled to begin this summer.
Based in Centennial, Haselden has completed 20 different buildings for the University of Colorado Hospital.
The company’s recent projects include One Steamboat Place and the Pioneers Medical Center in Meeker.
YVMC chose Haselden from a list of three finalists.
“We were looking for a partner that demonstrated a successful history in these types of projects, while completing them on time and budget,” hospital CEO Frank May was quoted as saying in a news release.
The hospital’s board of trustees recently approved a two-phase expansion plan that calls for construction of a new cancer treatment center on the YVMC campus and conversion of the former Doak Walker Care Center into a new outpatient pavilion.
The cancer center will be housed in the top floor of a new, 14,000-square-foot building that will be added to the east side of the hospital next to the former Doak.
The former Doak, which includes 26,000 square feet of space, will be renovated and converted into the outpatient pavilion that will house the new Gloria Gossard Breast Health Center, YampaCare Cardiology and YampaCare for Women, a program that offers services ranging from obstetrics and gynecology to menopause care.
The project will be completed in two phases beginning this summer.

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Things are normally pretty quiet around the base area of Steamboat Resort this time of year, but a lot has happened since the ski area closed following the 2020-21 season.
