Collaborative Partners

West Springs Hospital

Privately-owned, not-for-profit West Springs Hospital is the only psychiatric hospital on Colorado’s western slope and a proud sister organization to Mind Springs Health.  The new, up-to-64 bed hospital opened in 2018 as a state-of-the-art facility providing a safe, restorative environment with a caring and compassionate staff dedicated towards stabilizing each patient and providing treatment to enable them to return home as soon as possible.  The average stay at West Springs Hospital is 6 days.  After discharge, patients are scheduled with follow-up outpatient services at Mind Springs Health.

Colorado Crisis Services

Mind Springs Health is a proud partner of  Colorado Crisis Services.  If you or someone you are concerned about is experiencing a mental health crisis, call Colorado Crisis Services’ 24/7/365 Hotline 1.844.493.TALK ( or text TALK to 38255) and you’ll be connected to immediate support and mobile crisis response & respite services if needed.

Health Information Exchange

Seamless communication and access to patient information among health care providers, both physical and mental, is is an imperative step to receiving the best care possible. That’s why we partnered with Quality Health Network to establish the first-ever-in-Colorado whole Health Information Exchange program.

The instantaneous feedback means physicians and clinicians do not have to wait days for records to be securely transmitted. A fully secured system, health care providers across all disciplines can access the record the moment they need it.

HIPAA requirements are different for physical health care and behavioral health care and in the past sharing information between physical health care doctors and mental health care doctors was difficult. Together with QHN we developed a HIPAA-compliant program to increase communication and eliminates waste, resulting in greater collaboration among health care providers and ensuring clients receive the very best care. Learn more about how the Health Information Exchange program is transforming care in our local communities.

Integrated Care

We believe true wellness means both a healthy body and a healthy mind and we understand convenience is important in health care. That’s why we collaborate with physical health care hospitals, schools, social service programs, nursing homes and other organizations to make it easy and convenient to access treatment. Learn more about our Integrated Care Approach and how we’re shaping mental health care in our local communities.
