Dear Mountain Family Health Centers Family and Friends,
As the year comes to a close, I want to express a heartfelt thank you for being a part of our family. Mountain Family Health Centers is honored to provide care for more than 21,000 people in our communities. We could not do this important work without you, our patients, partners and supporters.
2019 has been an exciting year for reaching new patients and expanding our services across Pitkin, Eagle, and Garfield counties. The newly opened Basalt Integrated Health Center is part of Mountain Family’s network of eight locations, where our dedicated staff provide affordable, high quality medical, dental, and behavioral health care. Our new health center in Basalt allows Mountain Family to provide integrated care to 3,700 persons, effectively doubling our capacity to serve the Roaring Fork Valley.
Recognizing the urgent public need for the expanded mid-valley Basalt Integrated Health Center, an ambitious public-private partnership stepped forward to back the effort: Pitkin County, Aspen Valley Hospital and Eagle County are supporting the building lease costs and subsidies for low-income, uninsured patients served there. The Alpenglow Foundation, Aspen Skiing Company and Mountain Family have all contributed matching grant funding totaling $700,000. To date, the campaign has raised $2 million, with $1.2 million left to go.
Please consider contributing to this vital public resource. Matching funds will automatically increase your gift, too. Please visit our website donation page today to make your gift https://www.mountainfamily.org/give/capital-campaign/.

I wish you all the best for a healthy new year.
