Spanish Peaks Regional Health Center is located on the high plains of Southeastern Colorado just three miles west of the rural town of Walsenburg, Colorado in Huerfano County. At an altitude of 6200 feet, our climate is mild, with cooler summers and warmer winters, and the air is crisp and clean.

Under a contract with the State of Colorado, the health center is operated by the Huerfano County Hospital District, a Colorado Special District, directed by a 5 member, county-elected Board of Directors. Learn more about our Board Of Directors.

Huerfano County has a long history as it was home to many Native Americans and later settled in the mid 1800's by Mexicans of Spanish decent who migrated from what is now New Mexico and the San Luis Valley. Huerfano County presents breathtaking scenery, fascinating history and a wealth of recreational options. Huerfano County was one of the 17 original counties when Colorado became a state in 1876. The word "Huerfano" (War-Fe-No) translated, means "Orphan." It was named after the lone volcanic butte 7 miles north of Walsenburg on I-25.

Walsenburg is located on I-25 and US 160, with access to Colo. Hwy 10. As the county seat it has served as a trade center for the county and region. Walsenburg is named in honor of Fred Walsen an early pioneer, who opened the first coal mines. The town grew quickly following the discovery of coal. Over 50 mines were developed. The mines began closing in the 1950's and are no longer in operation.

Spanish Peaks Veterans Community Living Center is an award-winning Veterans Nursing Home in Huerfano County, Colorado, located minutes from I-25 between Pueblo and Trinidad. Our location is truly remarkable, with the mighty plains to the east, a State Park literally across the street and majestic mountains surrounding 270° of the property.
