Kit Carson County Memorial Hospital’s Specialty Clinic offers the community an opportunity to see specialized physicians without traveling long distances. All of the specialty clinic doctors are non-employed, independent physicians, unless otherwise indicated.

Specialties offered:

 Allergy & Asthma
Ear, Nose, & Throat (ENT)
General Surgery (Same Day)
OB/GYN (outpatient only)

To make an appointment with a Specialty Clinic Provider call 719-346-4780. Please check in at the registration desk that is just beyond the front entrance of the hospital. Once you are checked in, you will be escorted to the Outpatient Specialty Clinic waiting room upstairs.

Level IV Trauma Center

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has determined that KCCMH meets the required resources and commitment for level IV trauma center designation. To earn this designation level, KCCMH had to pass an in-depth evaluation process by the state.

What does Level IV Trauma Center mean?

As a Level IV Trauma Center, KCCMH is capable of receiving and stabilizing trauma patients, including those with life threatening injuries or illnesses. If necessary, once stabilized, patients can be transported from the Kit Carson County Memorial Hospital to another facility.


Quality & Patient Safety

We Care About YOU!

To help ensure your safety, please bring the following with you to the Emergency Room and doctor’s appointments:

  • Your insurance card and driver’s license (ID).
  • A list of your medications, allergies and surgeries. (If you do not have a medication list ready, please bring the bottles with you).
  • Your primary care physician’s name and office phone number.

Patients are our number one priority and we want you to feel safe during your visit at our facilities. If you have a suggestion on how we can improve your safety, please contact our Quality and Risk Manager.

Community Needs Assessment

Each year we invite Kit Carson County residents to take our Community Health Needs Assessment so KCCMH has a better understanding of how to best care for the community.

Tobacco Free Campus

Kit Carson County Memorial Hospital (KCCMH) is committed to the prevention of disease and the promotion of health and healing. KCCMH recognizes that tobacco and tobacco products are a health and safety hazard and therefore are not permitted inside our buildings.

All forms of tobacco used by employees, volunteers, medical staff, patients and visitors are prohibited inside all of our facility properties.
