Boulder Community Health (Boulder, Colo.) opened the two-story Erie Medical Center in Erie, Colo., in June 2019. The 41,650-square-foot medical office building (MOB) provides urgent care services, diagnostic imaging and laboratory services, outpatient pediatric rehabilitation services, and five distinct medical specialty practices.

Over the last decade, the town of Erie has been one of the fastest growing communities in Boulder County. Lacking existing healthcare facilities, Boulder Community Health recognized the need, and selected clinics for the Erie Medical Center through input from community members and leaders.

The design by PEH Architects (Boulder, Colo.) and interior design firm Bloom Studio (Westminster, Colo.) combines a modern approach, featuring a glass entry tower topped by a curved metal roof, with classic materials to create a landmark building that complements the adjacent historic downtown area.
