About Us


We Invite You to Experience Health

The Colorado Center for Hyperbaric Medicine is located in Basalt, Colorado in the heart of the majestic Roaring Fork Valley.  The Roaring Fork Valley features some of North America’s most premier and diverse skiing terrain. Aspen/Snowmass, with world class skiing and culture rich heritage, has attracted the likes of celebrities, great thinkers and ordinary folk who cherish the pure living that the area has to offer. Each group has brought with it the demand for year round entertainment and events.

The Roaring Fork Valley is a very active community due to its appeal as a winter sports destination. However, summertime offers a whole new opportunity for activities. Rafting and kayaking are popular summertime activities and a great way to enjoy the majestic river ecosystems. The Roaring Fork and its tributaries offer “Gold Medal” fishing waters and is a destination for serious fly fishers in North America. The river corridor also offers a recently completed mostly paved bicycle/pedestrian pathway that starts in Aspen and connects all 45 miles to Glenwood Springs. If you enjoy hiking you will never tire of the endless trails and mountain roads that offer gentle accents to 14,000’ peak climbs.
