Visiting hours

Admission process

Once your doctor refers you for surgery or a procedure at Medical Center of the Rockies or Poudre Valley Hospital, your doctor’s office typically will schedule a pre-admission appointment for you. This appointment is required before surgery.

Call 970-624-1500 as soon as possible to schedule your pre-admission appointment if your doctor’s office has not done so already.

During this appointment you will:

  • Meet with an admissions clerk to verify that all paperwork is accurate
  • Learn the total out-of-pocket expense of your procedure
  • Meet with a pre-admission nurse who will explain what to expect the day of surgery and which currently prescribed medications can be taken before the surgery

You may also complete any required diagnostic tests after meeting with the nurse. Ask your doctor if you can eat or drink before your appointment.

Help support the health of our community

Make a donation to support programs and services at Poudre Valley Hospital, Medical Center of the Rockies, and health initiatives in our community.


Share your time and talents by volunteering at Poudre Valley Hospital, Medical Center of the Rockies or other University of Colorado Health sites in Northern Colorado. Hundreds of community members are volunteers.

You’ll make new friends, enjoy a change of pace, gain a new perspective, learn more about health care and, most importantly, you’ll help the UCHealth effort to improve lives.

Examples of the many opportunities for volunteering:

  • Greet families and friends in waiting rooms while their loved ones undergo surgery.
  • Work in gifts shops in the two hospitals or Unique Repeats Thrift Shop near PVH; proceeds support MCR and PVH services and programs.
  • Drive carts to shuttle visitors to and from hospital parking lots.
  • Assist with office duties.
  • Stock supplies in work areas.

Pet Therapy Program


For those of you with lovable dogs, both hospitals offer hugely successful pet therapy programs. Research has shown that interaction with pets can help in a patient’s recovery. After you and your dog receive training, you escort your pet around to visit patients, visitors and staff members.

VolunTeen Program

There’s also a fun VolunTeen program at each hospital where teenagers from ages 14 through 17 deliver cookies to patients, assist with clerical duties, manage a recycling program (at MCR) and gain experience in many other areas, a great resume-builder for teens.

The process to become a volunteer includes an interview, orientation and training.
