Gunnison Living Community Master Plan  |  Gunnison, Colorado

Boulder Associates provided planning services for Gunnison Living Community, an existing 11-acre campus with a 59-bed skilled nursing facility, a 12-bed special care unit, and a 15-unit assisted living facility. These facilities are part of the Gunnison Valley Health System, and are affiliated with Gunnison Valley Hospital, a 24-bed Critical Access Hospital.

The primary goals of this master planning effort were to analyze the existing facilities, project future census levels, and develop alternative plans for rethinking the 11-acre campus. The approved master plan calls for re-sizing each level of care to meet future demand, enlarging the assisted living home to 23 units, replacing the nursing home with a resident-centered three-household, 49-bed facility connected to the assisted living home, and converting the existing nursing home to home health and hospice offices and a future senior community center.
