|On Dec. 2, the Acute Care Facility at Larimer County’s Longview Campus opened to accept patients who are experiencing a self-defined crisis related to mental health or substance use. This marks a new era of behavioral health care services available in Larimer County.
Between Dec. 2 and Jan. 6, we have already seen approximately 500 people access our Behavioral Health Urgent Care, with 200 of those being admitted and the others receiving triage and stabilization that met their needs without requiring overnight stays.
The facility, located at 2260 W. Trilby Road, Fort Collins, opened with 20 beds and 10 exam rooms in our behavioral health urgent care, and last week we were able to open an additional 8 beds to expand the capacity for services.
We currently have a 23-hour observation unit, a crisis stabilization unit, and a withdrawal management (also known as detox) unit operating in the facility.
