TRINIDAD, CO – Mt. San Rafael Hospital is working with their partners at 9Health:365 (previously 9Health Fair) to coordinate the return of important health screenings for area residents this spring. The annual 9Health:365 Fair has been on hiatus since the onset of COVID-19; however, this important Health Fair is making its long-awaited return Saturday, April 23rd, from 7:30am to 12 Noon at Mt.
