About Health District of Northern Larimer County
The Health District of Northern Larimer County is a special tax district created by voters in 1960 to serve the health needs of the community. It is a local government operating under special district laws of the State of Colorado. The boundaries of the District encompass the northern two-thirds of Larimer County and include the cities of Fort Collins, Laporte, Timnath, Wellington, Livermore, and Red Feather Lakes. The Health District is primarily supported by local property tax dollars. The Health District has been meeting local healthcare needs since 1960. Today, it provides health services from seven sites in Fort Collins – four owned facilities and one leased Health District space, as well as shared space with two other facilities where Health District staff work collaboratively with staff from other organizations, including Salud Family Health Centers and the Family Medicine Center. The District provides dental, mental health, prescription assistance, cholesterol and blood pressure testing, quitting tobacco, health insurance assistance, and advance care planning services to the residents of Northern Larimer County. With a focus on health equity in its work, in addition to pr...oviding direct services, the Health District assists the community in understanding and addressing key barriers to health and adjusting to the ever-changing challenges and opportunities that impact health and health care. It also partners with other local organizations to assess and plan for the larger healthcare needs of the community. The District is governed by a publicly elected, five-member Board of Directors that establishes the agency’s priorities and hires and oversees the Executive Director. The Health District’s 2022 budget is $19.7 Million, $16.4 Million of which is budgeted for operational expenditures. Programs and services are provided by 110 talented and dedicated employees.
