Our History & Mission

It All Started in 1973

In 1973, a group of local Boulder Valley citizens founded the non-profit health center Boulder Valley Clinic to assure access to counseling and abortion services following the 1973 Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide. Over the following years, the clinic expanded its reproductive and sexual health services and in 1987, the clinic moved to its current location on Valmont Road, and our name was changed to Boulder Valley Women’s Health Center. Over the last decade, best practices in reproductive and sexual health care were transformed by the Reproductive Justice Movement which moves beyond the focus on Women’s Health and Rights and asserts that all people deserve to have the power and resources necessary to make health decisions about their gender, bodies, sexuality, and families for themselves and their communities. Our new name and logo, Boulder Valley Health Center, was adopted in our 50th year (2023) and reflects our commitment- as advocates, community leaders, clinical experts, and educators- to creating a non-profit organization that is inclusive and welcoming to everyone.

Our Mission, Vision, and Values

We believe in respecting the dignity of all people. We strive to make quality healthcare available to all, particularly those who experience unique barriers to access, such as people who are low-income or uninsured, monolingual Spanish speakers, youth, LGBTQIA+ persons, and people with disabilities.

Our Mission

As a local, independent provider, our mission is to offer accessible, evidence-based, and compassionate health care, including abortion, family planning, gynecology, gender-affirming services, community education, and sexual health support.

Our Vision

Boulder Valley Health Center envisions an informed community of people empowered to make health-related choices that support vibrant, full lives.

Our Values

  • Care:  We provide medically accurate information and individualized, evidence-based care to our community, regardless of a patient’s race, ethnicity, income, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical attributes, immigration status, or language.
  • Compassion: We demonstrate compassion in everything we do. We are committed to maintaining a respectful, kind, caring, inclusive, and safe environment for our patients and our staff.
  • Community: As a local provider, we contribute to the vitality of our community by removing barriers to access; offering patient care through the lens of the social determinants of health; and continually supporting reproductive justice.
