Our Patients | Our Family | Our Heart

Our Heart Is in the Home. When Mount Evans was founded in 1980 our motto was “Mountain people helping mountain people.” It’s who we were then and it’s who we are now. Our heart has always been and will always be in the home and with our patients. Our mission is special and there isn’t a day that passes that we don’t realize how lucky we are to know, love and care for the extraordinary people in our mountain community. We also recognize that we couldn’t do what we do without the backing of a remarkable community.

Throughout the next year, we plan to share our stories. We hope to touch your heart in much the same way as our patients touch ours. We also want you to know us and why we do what we do.

Please follow along in Colorado Serenity MagazineCanyon CourierClear Creek Courant and the 285 Hustler as well as our social media pages to learn why Our Heart is in the Home. We think you’ll be inspired.

A psychological social worker by profession, Ray served as the director of Forest Heights Lodge for 35 years. He dedicated his life’s work and heart to helping boys struggling with emotional, behavioral, academic and social issues.

Betsy Hays

My job is to raise funds to make sure the staff at Mount Evans is here to take care of everyone in our community for in-home medical needs whether you are in a car accident, have a serious illness, or need end-of-life hospice care. Last year, our clinical team conducted over 25,000 patient visits across a four-county service area regardless of the patient’s ability to pay. There is a good chance someone near you has received our services. Join me in donating to Mount Evans!”
