Hospital District Selects Design Team for New Facility

TELLURIDE, Colo. — Last month the Telluride Hospital District selected an architectural firm, Mahlum, to execute the initial planning and design phases for the proposed new medical center in Mountain Village. Mahlum Architects competed with three other firms for the contract and brings highly specialized experience in healthcare facility design to the project.

Last month the Mahlum team worked with TMC staff and administrators to begin the design process. The public will also have opportunities to shape the new facility in the coming months. The selection process was conducted by THD’s Facility Advisory Committee, a group chosen by the THD to take responsibility for designing, constructing and funding the new regional medical center with continued input from the community.

The Facility Advisory Committee includes Ron Allred, Davis Fansler, Corey Fortenberry, Dan Tishman and Jim Wells with Dan Garner and Larry Mallard acting as THD board liaisons.

Guided by a patient-centered approach, Mahlum has more than 70 years of experience in healthcare design, including work with 17 critical access/rural hospitals. “We create healing environments that reflect the latest sustainable strategies, advanced healthcare delivery and building system technologies and operational best practices,” said Mahlum’s Design Principal Anne Schopf, FAIA.

Mahlum is joined by partner Joe Kunkel, co-founder of The Healthcare Collaborative Group.
