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 has consolidated 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
was completed on October 9, 2014.
ER Closure at Boulder Community Hospital
As part of this consolidation of services, the Emergency Department at
Boulder Community Hospital at Broadway and Balsam has closed permanently.
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, are provided at
