During the Boulder program’s first few years, UCHealth’s Medical Center of the Rockies will provide trained staff while the Boulder Community Health-based staff members are fully trained.

“With the support of Medical Center of the Rockies, BCH will establish and coordinate a cadre of specially trained nurses who can meet the medical and emotional needs of sexual assault survivors while collecting the forensic evidence that will help in the successful prosecution of these sex offenders,” said Jacqueline Attlesey-Pries, vice president and chief nursing officer at Boulder Community Health.
