Nursing/Hospital Services

Taking care of patients since 1948, Kit Carson County Memorial Hospital is focus on quality care. We offer a variety of services and are dedicated to providing compassionate care. 

Services at Kit Carson County Memorial Hospital Include:

Inpatient

Also known as Acute Care, involves daily physician management of the patient and 24-hour RN/LPN care. The goal is to rehabilitate and discharge patients when acute care is no longer necessary.   

Emergency Room

Kit Carson County Memorial Hospital proudly boasts a designated Level IV Trauma 
Center with physicians’ on-call around the clock. It has two trauma bays and two exam rooms and is staffed with skilled trauma nurses who are dedicated to caring for all your emergency needs in a compassionate, efficient manner. 

Our emergency department entrance is located on the north side of the hospital. 

Obstetrics

At Kit Carson County Memorial Hospital, we believe that your child’s birth is an event to be cherished for a lifetime. We are privileged to be delivering babies for over 65 years and we are committed to providing family-centered care.

We have two delivery rooms, one C-section suite and one recovery room.    

Anesthesia

Kit Carson County Health Services District is honored to be partnering with CPR Anesthesia on a full time basis for anesthesia coverage. We provide 24/7 obstetrical anesthesia to the community. Additionally, by having a full time anesthesia provider available it allows surgeons to perform more cases locally, allowing patients to receive their care closer to home rather than driving long distances for the same care.

Swing Bed
Kit Carson County Memorial Hospital understands that recovering from surgery, an accident/injury or illness can be very difficult, especially when distance separates you from home or family. 

The Swing Bed program was created for patients who are on their way to recovery, but still needing to improve strength and independence. These patients aren’t quite ready to go home yet as they need assistance with their rehabilitation. 

Observation Care

Patients who have problems not normally qualifying of a hospital stay, is are able to stay for a specified amount of time for observation. Your physician will decide whether to release you from the hospital or admit you as an inpatient. Typically, a decision to release or admit is made within 24 hours.
