About Pitkin County Public Health

Since the early 1970’s, state-mandated public health responsibilities in Pitkin County had been managed by the longtime local nonprofit, Community Health Services (CHS) in Aspen. Over the years Community Health laid the groundwork for how the community would respond to threats of Avian Flu and Ebola, among other public health epidemics and crises. These responsibilities came in addition to the day-to-day operation of the direct health services they provide, services for women’s health, immunizations, sexually transmitted and communicable diseases.
