Boulder Community Health’s highest priority is to do everything we
can to maintain the safety of our patients, staff and the overall community
during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes modifying our services to
maximize the impact of our medical resources.
As part of our response planning, we've determined that it is prudent
to centralize our emergency medicine resources at our busiest location,
Foothills Hospital, which is seeing and would continue to see the majority
of people experiencing respiratory illnesses, both flu and COVID-19. To
accomplish this, we will
temporarily close the Emergency Department at Community Medical Center (CMC) in Lafayette,
effective Wednesday, March 25, at 9 p.m.
The Emergency Department will be closed for up to 90 days, with ongoing
reassessment of the situation. Staff from the CMC Emergency Department
will be transferred to the Foothills Hospital Emergency Department and
other areas of BCH.
Residents of Lafayette and adjoining communities have access to other nearby
The Imaging and Laboratory services at CMC will also close, with those
staff being absorbed into other BCH locations.
The following BCH services will remain open at CMC:
