Mountain Family Health Centers
- Hospitals & Clinics
Who We Are:
From a single clinic in 1978, we have expanded as a nonprofit, community-led, Federally Qualified Health Center system, dedicated to providing comprehensive, integrated health care for all. We firmly believe health care is a basic human right, not a privilege.
What We Do:
Mountain Family currently serves more than 19,000 patients.
Our system integrates medical, dental and behavioral care — a necessary measure for the vulnerable, who often show up in our clinics with medical problems related to poor teeth, substance abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety and other complicated combinations.
We exceed national clinical outcome goals for childhood immunizations; hypertension control; tobacco screening and cessation; healthy weight screening, nutrition and activity counseling; depression screening and follow-up; early entry into prenatal care; and healthy birth weight babies. We were also recently rated Colorado’s top performing community health system for diabetes control.
What This Means:
By reducing chronic illness and cutting hospital burdens, Mountain Family saves the region $18.1 million in health costs.
Mountain Family brings $15.7 million annually into the local economy, including $1.4 million paid in state and local taxes.
We employ 175 local people.
We have contributed to an 84% increase in patients enrolled in Medicaid, improving their access to care.
Mountain Family improves health, increases patient satisfaction, controls health care costs, and improves the working conditions of health care providers.
