Mission Statement

MCPN is a nonprofit organization and has integrated health services to the underserved since 1989. MCPN's mission is to partner with the community to provide excellent, culturally sensitive health services to meet the needs of each individual…every touch, every time. Our vision is to see individuals empowered to live the lives they want through personalized, compassionate health care.

Organization History

From a single clinic in 1989, MCPN has grown into a large, integrated health care delivery system providing primary medical care, oral health, and behavioral health services. MCPN offers a broad range of wrap around services and supports for pregnant women, adolescents, homeless individuals, patients with HIV, and Refugees. MCPN addresses the need for affordable and accessible integrated care among low-income, uninsured, and underserved populations residing outside the city and county of Denver. MCPN operates 18 community-based health centers, including two School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) in Jefferson County and a mobile dental van that provides oral health services to school-age children. The target population for the organizations' service delivery is those individuals living below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) within MCPN's 5-county service area. In FY2017, MCPN provided healthcare and related services to 53,842 individuals.

All 18 MCPN health center locations are currently recognized as Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH) by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc.(AAAHC). MCPN's service area encompasses Adams, Arapahoe, Douglas, Jefferson, and Park Counties and the cities of Arvada, Aurora, Edgewater, Englewood, Lakewood, Parker, and Wheat Ridge.

MCPN specifically focuses on providing linkages to care at shelters, motels, food pantries, and other areas where the homeless congregate, to serve as a bridge to much-needed primary medical care, dental care, and behavioral health services. To help deepen the community collaborations around behavioral health services, MCPN has four co-located health centers with community mental health center partners in the 5-county service area. These efforts will support heightened linkages to primary care for those patients with chronic behavioral health issues, including opioid use disorders.

Testimonials

Dear Community Partners and Supporters,

My name is Ben Wiederholt and I am the President and CEO of Metro Community Provider Network (MCPN). Attached you will find our 2017 annual report, which highlights our growth as an organization. Before we dive into the highlights from the previous year, I first wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a little more about myself and why I've chosen to pursue this exciting opportunity with MCPN.

I have an unusual combination of graduate degrees in Theology and Healthcare Administration and I am a fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives. My entry into healthcare began in the field of mission integration, where I had responsibilities for departments like community health improvement, spiritual care, volunteers, transitional and post-acute care, and service excellence. After ten years of mission leadership, I transitioned into operations and I most recently served at Centura Health as St. Anthony Hospital's Director of Ambulatory Operations. On the personal side, family life keeps me busy as my wife Jess and I have seven children- three by birth and four by adoption from Ethiopia and Uganda. I also enjoy almost any athletic competition, both as an observer and practitioner.

The reason I pursued this opportunity at MCPN is captured in a single word: IMPACT. I believe we have the greatest impact on individual and community health when we find ourselves at the intersection of people's life circumstances and the extent to which their well being allows them to pursue the life they desire to live. At MCPN, we have the privilege to share that space with our patients everyday. We need new solutions to address the multiple ailments of our healthcare delivery system. I am convinced that MCPN is well positioned to lead with our unique care delivery model, and our proven ability to reduce costs and improve outcomes.
I look forward to working with community partners like you to advance our mission on behalf of the people in our community that are counting on us. David Myers has certainly left big shoes to fill and I will dedicate myself to honoring his legacy.
Sincerely,

Ben Wiederholt
MCPN President and CEO
