Vail Health has long been in the business of helping house its workers. Vail Health Chief Real Estate Development Officer Craig Cohn said the organization recently re-upped 10-year master leases at Middle Creek when a batch of those leases was about to expire.
Vail Health is also working to expand its inventory of units available to employees, and Cohn said Vail Health is working on a few land acquisition deals in the Vail Valley. He added that the organization wants to have another 60 or so units available within the next two or three years.
While Vail Health is looking for opportunities as it expands its operations in Summit County and the Roaring Fork Valley, Cohn said the priority right now is the Vail Valley. But, he said he also recently spoke to a Summit County developer about prospects for a project there. Cohn said Vail Health has a program to help employees buy homes.
