On January 26, 2022, Vail Health’s Eagle Valley Behavioral Health (EVBH) became the first in Colorado to receive a licensure as a Behavioral Health Entity (BHE) through a new licensure process created by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). The Behavioral Health Entity license was the final step needed for Eagle Valley Behavioral Health to complete the process of receiving designation as the 18th Community Mental Health Center in Colorado.
