Mind The Gap: Committed to Our Community's Mental Health

"Boulder Community Health is an independent health system that's solely focused on this community, giving us an unmatched ability to respond to the evolving mental health needs. This new addition to our Foothills Medical Campus will provide our friends and neighbors crucial resources that are not available in most other cities." -- Dr. Robert Vissers, President & CEO, Boulder Community Health

We are proud to announce that we have reached our fundraising goal of $6 million for the Della Cava Family Medical Pavilion, an innovative 70,000 square foot space adjacent to Foothills Hospital, designed to close the gap in our community's mental health resources.

Special thanks to over 400 community members for their generosity to make this happen.

The Della Cava Family Medical Pavilion offers:

  • State-of-the-art inpatient mental health units: Concentrating on adults with acute psychiatric disorders, cognitive behavioral therapy, medication management, family involvement, nutrition, and emotional crisis management with the goal of personal independence and a successful return to the community.
  • 18 inpatient beds with the flexibility to add more in the future, making our medical pavilion the only inpatient acute care facility in Boulder.
  • Integrative care: We offer services that extend beyond the physical by connecting mind, body and soul to improve overall patient health outcomes. We'll provide therapies including acupuncture, massage, meditation, yoga, and Reiki.
  • Outpatient mental health services and neurology center

lobby areaOur new pavilion is also more conducive to healing with welcoming spaces, ample natural light, and a safe therapeutic atmosphere. The design process included expertly-trained clinicians and our patients to ensure a healing environment.

Our new Medical Pavilion is named in recognition of the generous donation from the Della Cava Family.

Watch members of our community, Lou and Melodie Della Cava and Brad and Amy Batchelor, explain what the commitment to mental health in our community means to them:
