The Boulder Community Health Foundation celebrated a key milestone on Thursday in the Della Cava Family Medical Pavilion project: the traditional signing of the top steel beam of the new mental health building.

The new mental health pavilion is made possible through an $8 million dollar capital campaign that is underway in support of the building and the establishment of the Mental Health Endowment.

Over $5 million has been raised to date, including lead donations from Lou & Melodie Della Cava and Amy Batchelor & Brad Feld.

The 700,000 square foot space is currently under construction across from Foothills Hospital, and will be key to our commitment to enhance our community’s mental health.

The building will allow Boulder Community Health to extend mental health care and evolve services to meet the growing needs of our community through state-of-the-art inpatient mental health units, 18 inpatient beds, integrative care, outpatient mental health services, a neurology center and more.

“This new addition to our Foothills Medical Campus will provide our friends and neighbors crucial resources that are not available in most other cities,” said Dr. Robert Vissers, BCH President & CEO.

The building is scheduled to open early 2019.
