Solvista Health, Cañon City West Campus Renovation and Master Plan

Sol Vista Health, Cañon City West Campus Remodel

Solvista’s West Campus facility was previously a newspaper publishing plant, purchased in 2015 for business expansion. As an established healthcare provider serving Fremont, Custer, Chafee, and Lake counties, Solvista Health identified a need to renovate the building to expand services for their community.

Solvista Health had a vision to design and construct a therapeutic, unique, and modern facility tailored to children, teens, and families. Working with architect Keys+Lauer, the project was centered on the renovation of 8,000 square feet to house the child and family team, increase space for child and family services, and improve administrative and support spaces.

“It was such a joy and a privilege to work with the Solvista team, Keys + Lauer Architects and Owner’s Representative Synergy Construction Concepts to transform their facility into a fun and vibrant space,” said Ryan Kessinger, GH Phipps’ project manager.

Phase II of the project was a large renovation of the physical therapy area.
Phase III is a new 17,000 SF clinic in Salida, CO

This large, single investment in community-based youth mental health is a first of its kind for Fremont County.

  • Undeveloped Warehouse Bays
  • Unique Design Supporting Behavioral Healthcare
  • Under Budget and On Time

“From the start, GH Phipps embraced our vision of building a premier mental health treatment space for youth and families in our rural community,” said Brian Turner, Solvista Health CEO. “Our vision has now come to life and young people have an amazing place they can truly be proud of to get the help they deserve.”

“This innovative treatment center was tailor-made for kids and families. We see parents, caregivers and families as critical partners in meeting each child’s individual needs. We work together to support thriving kids and thriving families,” said Erica Elliott, LPC, Child and Family Supervisor for Solvista. “We wanted this unique space to have a fun, youth-friendly atmosphere that feels like a place where young people want to come for help and feel comfortable doing so.”
