Reorganization of Rehab Services

New Locations, Improved Facilities

Boulder Community Health is embarking on a sweeping reorganization of its extensive rehabilitation programs that will maintain all services while improving access, expanding expertise and upgrading facilities.

BCH is partnering with UCHealth and Children’s Hospital Colorado to create a regional network of rehabilitation services.

“Boulder Community Health’s vision is to thoughtfully develop partnerships that help us create and care for the healthiest community in the country,” said Dr. Robert Vissers, BCH President/Chief Executive Officer. “Combining resources with Children’s Colorado and UCHealth allows us to collectively provide more patients with access to a comprehensive range of top quality rehab services.”

Outpatient Adult Rehabilitation

BCH’s Outpatient Adult Rehabilitation program has relocated to the newly renovated facilities at the BCH Community Medical Center in Lafayette in spring 2019. This program will continue to provide adults with comprehensive therapy services that treat a wide variety of physical, cognitive and emotional challenges. Services will include physical, occupational, speech and hand therapies. BCH will independently operate this program.

Inpatient Rehabilitation

As previously announced, BCH is partnered with UCHealth to open an 18-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit at UCHealth Broomfield Hospital. The new inpatient rehabilitation unit is on the third floor of that hospital and combines the expertise of staff and specialists from both BCH and UCHealth. This state-of-the-art unit provides interdisciplinary therapy services to help restore strength, function and independence for patients recovering from serious injuries or illness.

Outpatient Pediatric Rehabilitation

BCH’s Outpatient Pediatric Rehabilitation program has relocated to the BCH Erie Medical Center (pictured above) and will continue to offer its evaluation and extensive therapy services. In addition, BCH is expanding its care alliance with Children’s Hospital Colorado to provide local patients with additional access to the extensive services provided at the Children’s Colorado Therapy Care Center in Broomfield.

“Children’s Colorado is one of the nation’s top 10 children’s hospitals and a tremendous resource for pediatric care,” said Dr. Vissers. “We’ve had a long and successful partnership with Children’s Colorado to jointly care for patients in the Intensive Care Nursery at Foothills Hospital. In March of last year, we formed a care alliance to improve the coordination of services across our respective organizations. We’re now expanding that care alliance to make it easier and faster for local families to get optimal care.”

BCH will share information with patients in all three rehab programs throughout this transition.
