Boulder Community Health is implementing a comprehensive multi-year development strategy to transform the way BCH provides medical care.
Consolidation of Services at Foothills Hospital
Boulder Community Health is consolidating the majority of inpatient acute care services at Foothills Hospital, located at Foothills Parkway and Arapahoe Avenue in east Boulder, a site that improves access to critical services for most residents of Boulder County. This includes surgery, imaging and laboratory services, and inpatient care for patients with heart disease, cancer, neurological issues and orthopedic injuries. Since 2011, more than 100,000 square feet of clinical space has been added to Foothills Hospital, along with additional medical office space. This process will be essentially completed on October 9, 2014, when we will shift most clinical operations to Foothills Hospital.
ER Closure at Boulder Community Hospital
As part of this consolidation of services, the Emergency Department at Boulder Community Hospital at Broadway and Balsam will close permanently on October 9.
Foothills Hospital features a newly renovated and expanded Emergency Department that is easily accessible via Foothills Parkway and Araphaoe Avenue, making it more accessible for many people. All emergency services, including our Regional Trauma Center and Primary Stroke Center, will operate at Foothills Hospital starting October 9.
Inpatient Services Remaining at
Boulder Community Hospital
After the majority of inpatient acute services move to Foothills, the following inpatient services will remain at Boulder Community Hospital:
We plan to relocate the outpatient services and business operations currently provided at the Mapleton Center for Rehabilitation to Boulder Community Hospital. Renovations to accommodate those new services will begin in fall of 2014. We expect to have all services relocated by the end of 2015.
In December 2013, the Mapleton Center was sold for $12.9 million. We will continue to use Mapleton (via lease) through the end of 2015.
