RSA owned 35-year-old building (home of Mountain Medical Center) gets new roof!

The RSA owns the 35-year-old building which houses Mountain Medical Center.  With multiple leaks, the RSA tackled re-roofing the building this past fall.  This project was made possible by carefully stewarding tax payer dollars saved specifically for this purpose for almost a decade!  Your money, thoughtfully used to accomplish the RSA mission of ensuring primary care services here in Ouray County!
