SJBPH requests judge appoint receiver to ensure smooth transition in health district dissolution


San Juan Basin Public Health (SJBPH), in coordination with Archuleta and La Plata counties, has filed an action requesting a judge appoint a third-party receiver to assist with the dissolution of SJBPH and the transition to single-county health agencies that will be operational on Jan. 1, 2024. The receiver will serve to oversee the transition and assist with disposition of assets, liabilities and other financial components of the dissolution.

The receiver will work with SJBPH’s board of health and leadership to ensure that the agency continues to meet Colorado’s public health standards through 2023. At the same time, the receiver will work to preserve and distribute the agency’s assets following the SJBPH dissolution. This includes employee transition, physical facilities in both Archuleta and La Plata counties, third-party contracts, records retention, client transition, addressing any financial and reporting issues, and any other topics that arise during the transition period. SJBPH’s fund balance will pay the receiver’s fees.

By overseeing these critical transitional elements, the receiver will serve to ensure that the dissolution of SJBPH occurs in an orderly and efficient manner without disruption in public health services to the residents who rely on SJBPH in Archuleta and La Plata counties. SJBPH staff and programs will continue to serve the health district’s residents throughout the transition period.

SJBPH’s board of health and the boards of county commissioners from both Archuleta and La Plata counties are working cooperatively to ensure a smooth transition to independent health agencies for each county. Appointing a receiver will safeguard important assets, streamline the wind-up and transition and protect the public health interests of the Coloradans who live within SJBPH’s jurisdiction.

Cordes & Company LLC via Bellann Raile has been appointed as receiver to facilitate the transition. Click here for more info
