Celebrating Community

SummitStone recognized among Community Builders for 2023

On March 2, SummitStone accepted the Community Builder Award for the Nonprofit Organization of the Year for Medical Services from BizWest. This is the second year for the Community Builder Awards, which recognizes the region’s outstanding nonprofit and for-profit organizations and individuals for their contribution to community development.

Our Chief Clinical Officer Cyndi Dodds accepted the award on behalf of SummitStone, our Board of Directors and our nearly 500 employees. This award was particularly poignant for SummitStone as we are celebrating 65 years of excellence in behavioral healthcare in Larimer County.

In her acceptance speech, Cyndi recognized that, as a Community Builder, SummitStone would not be able to do the amazing, life-saving work that we do without the extensive partnerships we have with so many other nonprofits in our region. We are truly honored to receive the recognition and look forward to continued and expanding partnerships.
