Information about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19)
Caring for our patients in a safe and healthy environment is our greatest concern and top priority. We have implemented CDC-recommended steps to reduce the potential for the virus to spread in our hospitals and have reviewed protocols around patient treatment groups and use of masks and other personal protective equipment with public health officials. This web page outlines what other CDC-recommended steps we are taking to reduce the potential for the virus to spread in our hospitals.
The Colorado Mental Health Institutes do not provide “shoppable” services as defined in Section 2718(e) of the Public Health Services Act. ‘Shoppable service’ means a service that can be scheduled by a health care consumer in advance.
