Delivering strategic site selection and speed-to-market for Colorado Mountain Medical and Centura Health in the heart of Colorado's Vail Valley.
With 26 physicians and 3 physician assistants, Colorado Mountain Medical (CMM) is the dominant primary care provider in Colorado’s Vail Valley. CMM wanted to expand its practice to provide more services at competitive rates, while doing so in a more centralized location with ample parking. Healthcare services in the Vail Valley have historically been provided in scattered locations, which tend to be hospital-centric. CMM envisioned providing patients with the convenience of evaluation, diagnosis, testing, treatment, therapy, and other specialty services under one roof in a highly visible, state-of-the-art outpatient center.
It was particularly important to CMM to provide Vail Valley patients with a more convenient and affordable emergency care alternative. The area’s only hospital, Vail Valley Medical Center (VVMC), is expensive and primarily focuses on orthopedic care. VVMC’s emergency department (ED) is also difficult to access on the eastern edge of the service area.
“To have this facility and these outcomes here in Avon is remarkable. NexCore Group is a company that walks its talk, and cares enormously about community and about what it’s trying to do for bettering people’s lives.”
Town Manager, Avon, CO
The NexCore project team incorporated universal exam rooms (designed for use by all specialties and provider types, allowing for flexible use of rooms to improve scheduling and room utilization) and centralized, collaborative care team areas into the CMM clinic. The result is a high performance physician clinic designed to deliver business plan results. CCM’s clinic occupies approximately 19,200 square feet on the second floor of the 48,400 square foot outpatient center.
"NexCore worked very hard to make sure we were able to design and develop a clinic that our patients and their families would enjoy. They were a great company to work with."
