Longmont United Hospital’s Centura Health Integrative Medicine (CHIM) program — formerly Health Center of Integrated Therapies — on Tuesday moved from the Longmont medical campus to the Summertree Building, 1380 Tulip St., Suite Q, across the street from the hospital.
«This move is incredibly advantageous for staff, patients and community members,» said Michelle Whitmore, CHIM group director. «The close proximity will increase our ability to serve hospital patients and provide us with a larger space to expand our services.»
The program uses alternative medicine therapies to complement modern conventional medicine such as massage, acupuncture, nutrition therapy consultations. Additional community acupuncture centers will be opening soon, officials said.
