Who We Are  //

Southern Teller County Health Services District (STCHSD) is a special Health Services District serving Southern Teller County in the state of Colorado.  It was formed in 1975 under the State of Colorado Title 32 Statutes with the original purpose of providing medical clinic and long term nursing care services  to area residents.  It has since expanded to provide EMS and Ambulance services to residents, visitors, and area workers.


Under Title 32, a Special District is an independent government entity supported by mill levy taxes on properties within District boundaries, as well as revenues from their services.  STCHSD is governed and managed by a seven-member volunteer Board of Directors.  Currently the District governs two entities:  Cripple Creek Care Center - a 24/7 skilled nursing care residential facility - and Emergency Medical Response Services, both located in Cripple Creek.


We work to promote the health, safety, prosperity, security, and general welfare of the inhabitants and visitors of the District. 


Mission Statement   //

The Southern Teller County Health Services District is committed to providing quality, affordable, and accessible emergency medical services and a long-term skilled nursing care option to the population of Southern Teller County and surrounding communities.
