Capital Campaign - Project Summary

Elevating Healthcare in our Community - The Campaign for Aspen Valley Hospital
To meet the needs of our community – today and in the years to come – Aspen Valley Hospital has developed a master facilities plan to upgrade and expand its physical plant. The result of years of planning is a state-of-the-art, patient-centric design for a community healthcare facility that meets national standards and norms as well as evolving patient expectations. The new modern facility will promote health and healing, enhance the patient and family experience, and support the natural environment. With an eye towards efficiency, functionality and patient safety, this plan addresses several longstanding facility limitations that impeded the overall patient care environment and experience.

 This vital and comprehensive project has been made possible through a partnership that includes major investments by the Hospital, public funding, and philanthropy.  To bring this next phase to fruition, Aspen Valley Hospital seeks widespread philanthropic support from the community--a community so generous and committed to wellness and the healthcare needs of our area--in raising a minimum of $60 million.  To date, we've raised $43 million toward this objective
