East Morgan County Hospital (EMCH) takes pride in providing excellent patient care and having quality outcomes for our patients.
The hospital in Brush opened in 1910. Since 1954, we have been owned by East Morgan County Hospital District. The current building was opened in 1967 and today is a 25-bed critical access hospital serving Morgan County and northeastern Colorado.
Located in rural Colorado, East Morgan County Hospital is proud to offer the latest technological advances in medicine, so that residents can receive high quality care without leaving their hometown. These technology advances include usage of electronic medical records, the innovative Banner iCare™ program, a technology that allows specially trained physicians to monitor our local patients from hundreds of miles away. East Morgan County Hospital also offers state-of-the-art computerized tomography technology (CT scan) which greatly improves the physician's ability to diagnose trauma injuries or diseases.
Designated as a Level IV Trauma Center, East Morgan has a 24-hour Emergency department with three trauma bays. In late 2010, the expanded and remodeled Surgical department was opened featuring two state-of the-art surgery suites and one endoscopy room.
With 185 employees, East Morgan is one of the area’s largest employers. It has 18 active staff physicians and benefits from the services of 55 volunteers.
The hospital district is supported financially by the property taxpayers in Brush, Hillrose and Snyder. The hospital is operated by Banner Health.
