Boulder Community Health

Visitor Services


Effective October 9, Boulder Community Health is consolidating the majority of inpatient acute care services at Foothills Hospital, located at Foothills Parkway and Arapahoe Avenue in east Boulder.  This includes surgery, imaging and laboratory services, and inpatient care for patients with heart disease, cancer, neurological issues and orthopedic injuries. There will be no changes in the range of services available, only the location. This is part of a consolidation of services at Foothills Hospital.


We understand that a visit to the hospital can be a trying and stressful experience.   

This section provides information on simple services that can make your experience a bit easier and less stressful.

We encourage you to ask BCH staff members or volunteers for help. We enjoy helping you!
