Ross Brooks, CEO & patient

Mountain Family Health Centers has started renovations on a new Community Health Center in Avon, Colorado, which will be open for new patients in early 2023.

The new integrated health center will provide access to affordable medical, dental, behavioral, and pharmacy services for patients in the Eagle River Valley.

Mountain Family currently provides integrated care in Edwards, Colorado, and will be moving to the new location in Avon (230 Chapel Square) in early January 2023. The Avon clinic is easily accessible and conveniently located near an ECO Transit bus stop, enabling Mountain Family to care for up to 4,000 patients in Eagle County.  Many in Eagle County will be familiar with the location, as it was previously an urgent care facility operated by Vail Health.

The new Community Health Center is the culmination of strong partnerships with Vail Health, Eagle County, the Colorado Health Foundation, and many additional partners. 

“Mountain Family Health provides a vital service to our community, and we are proud to partner with them on this new location as it enhances access to more affordable care,” said Will Cook, President and CEO of Vail Health. “Vail Health has long been a supporter of Mountain Family, and this new arrangement allows us to provide subsidized rent for the center during the next five years to help support their relocation and expansion to almost double their size and expand their services to the community.”
