By Mountain Family Health Centers
Mountain Family is excited to announce that, as of February, we have served more than 20,000 patients over the past 18 months. (18 months is the time period we use for tracking visits and other quality measures.) We also nearly reached 90,000 visits during that same period. This is great news and a “first” for Mountain Family, as our goal is to reach as many residents in our service area as possible who live at 200% or below of the federal poverty level. Individuals in this category live on a household income of $24,120 per year or less, and a family of four with a household income each year of $49,200.
As we celebrate this milestone, we are thankful for our partnerships with community organizations that believe in our mission and the work that we do. Mountain Family looks forward to meeting and surpassing many more milestones with our Building Health for All capital campaign and expansion of our Basalt Health Center. We’re closer to our goal because of the hard work of all our employees and leadership. Way to go, team!
Mountain Family strives to be a leader in our community by providing medical, dental, and behavioral health services, with a mission to provide high quality, integrated primary medical, behavioral, and dental health care in the communities we serve, with special consideration for the medically underserved, regardless of ability to pay.
