New Integrated Health Center Opens in Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley


Clinic offers expanded primary care, dental, and behavioral health services to residents of Pitkin County and beyond

This week, Mountain Family Health Centers celebrated the opening of a new clinic in Basalt, Colorado, bringing expanded primary medical, dental, and behavioral health services to people across the Roaring Fork Valley.

At a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, guest speakers included Nan Sundeen, the Director of Pitkin County Human Services; clinic board members; and Mountain Family CEO, Ross Brooks. Their speeches were translated live in Spanish for members of the community.

Mountain Family Health Centers is a nonprofit, Federally Qualified Health Center, dedicated to providing comprehensive, integrated health care to more than 20,000 Coloradans, with ten clinic sites serving Garfield, Eagle, Pitkin and Rio Blanco counties. Mountain Family’s new Basalt Integrated Health Center is expected to serve an additional 1,500 patients in Basalt alone. A $2 million loan from Vital Healthcare Capital (V-Cap) as part of its Strengthening Primary Care Loan program supported the construction of the state of the art clinic.
