You wanted the best, you got the best. Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association’s Community Health Center, which opened in 2008, has some of the best outcomes in the State of Colorado in comparison to the State and National Average for seven quality measures.
Primary care is an important link in a process designed to gauge patients’ health and give them the tools to actively take part in feeling better. Patients with chronic health problems receive support from programs helping them slow or reverse health damage by quitting tobacco, exercising, monitoring cholesterol and blood sugar, exercising and improving diet.
Prevention tools, paired with patients’ commitment, can prevent serious health complications resulting in expensive emergency room visits and hospital stays. Community Health Centers save the health care system about $24 billion per year or $1,263 per patient, according to the National Association of Community Health Centers.
In addition to direct care and support, Community Health Center patients also may be eligible for prescription assistance. To date, patients at the Community Health Center in Craig have received medications with a wholesale value of more than one million dollars through the prescription assistance program. Community Health Center patients also benefit from referrals for specialized services with partners including Colorado West Regional Mental Health and Northwest Colorado Dental Coalition.
“Our Community Health Center’s safety net system is designed to help you get healthier no matter who you are or where you are in life,” said Lisa Brown, CEO.
