Help to Create a Healthier Community
At Estes Park Medical Center, we see all of these wellness initiatives and the partnerships we are developing as ways to more fully embrace our mission – to make a positive difference in the health and well-being of all we serve.
We invite you to join us in our effort to empower others to enhance their quality of life and to lead the way to a paradigm shift in creating healthier communities.
The Knutsson Family
A mainstay in the Estes Park Community
The Knuttson Family has been a part of the Estes Park community since the early 1900s. Their mission and belief in the importance of quality health care became the catalyst for what is now Estes Park Medical Center. “Dreams are contagious!” explained Debby Hughes, granddaughter of family matriarch Elizabeth Howell Knutsson (namesake of the original hospital built in 1975.) “I fully support the idea of a wellness center in Estes Park. It is the future of health care and provides significant long-term financial sustainability for the Medical Center. If all we do is take care of sick people, then we are doing a disservice to the people of our community and beyond.”
