We’re excited to announce that The Haven Assisted Living has officially merged with Northwest Colorado Health. When Northwest Colorado Health acquired The Haven in 2005, the partnership was structured so that each entity would keep its own 501c3 status and would have a separate Boards of Directors. At that time, there were advantages for The Haven’s employee’s health benefits identified so the two organizations remained individual agencies. Over the years, there were more advantages identified for both organizations if the two merged into one agency – with one board of directors and one 501c3 tax ID. What does this mean? You won’t see many visible changes. In reality, the two organizations have been functioning as one for the past 16 years. At The Haven, you’ll find the same wonderful staff and same homelike atmosphere. Small changes will take place “behind the scenes” that will allow for operational efficiencies in HR, Accounting, Maintenance, IT and Quality. The Haven believes that community members deserve the opportunity to age in place and remain a part of our community. For over 25 years, we've been caring for older adults in the Yampa Valley and will continue to provide an affordable assisted living option for residents, because older adults benefit from living the remainder of their years in their home community, near family and friends.
