Axis Health System, Durango

Axis Health

Commercial Bank Loan

Axis is an integrated community-based healthcare organization providing a comprehensive array of services for the people of southwest Colorado, a region that has historically been considered medically underserved. In 2023, FSWB financed Axis's purchase of the Mercury Building. Axis plans to consolidate its primary, behavioral, and oral health care and administrative services in one location, bringing five separate offices together and adding a pharmacy. 

Additional health resources in the new facility will include education about diabetes and nutrition, services for chronic disease management, vaccinations, and reproductive health services. Outreach services and insurance enrollment assistance, support for non-English speakers, and transportation and care coordination for families and people facing homelessness will also be offered at their new location.

“We’re really excited about providing a more accessible healthcare experience for southwest Colorado residents, and we couldn’t have done this without the bank’s help and the federal New Market Tax Credit Program." 

—Shelly Burke, Axis CEO
