Description

Mountain Family Health Centers will relocate and expand its Edwards Health Center in Vail Health's new Northstar Center, located just off the Edwards I-70 exit, and easily accessible by public transportation. The new health center is scheduled to open in 2023 and will be renamed as the Edwards Integrated Health Center. The new 8,000 square foot facility will be a state-of-the-art space for the delivery of integrated primary medical, behavioral (mental health and substance used disorders) health services. The new facility will enable Mountain Family to serve 4,800 patients annually, a 78% increase in capacity. Special emphasis will be placed on ensuring access to care for Eagle County's most underserved residents--those who are under or uninsured, have low household incomes, or are of Latinx ethnicity.

Currently, Mountain Family is in the process of raising $5.2 million for the renovation and equipping of the new Edwards Integrated Health Center.
