To provide primary health care to those in need.
Pueblo Community Health Center (PCHC) began providing primary health care services to Pueblo's underserved population in 1983. Originally housed on the grounds of the Colorado State Hospital, Pueblo Community Health Center moved to St. Mary-Corwin Hospital in 1986. In 1987, the organization purchased a building at 110 East Routt Avenue, which is currently where the administrative offices are located.
In 2000, the organization acquired and renovated the 2030 Lake Avenue site to further expand its capacity for dental services. Primary health care services are also provided through a satellite facility at 328 Avondale Boulevard in the rural community of Avondale; homeless patients may receive medical care at the PCHC clinic located in downtown Pueblo at 1008 North Grand Avenue.
In October 2002, the Park Hill Clinic at 1302 East Fifth Street opened its doors in the heart of Pueblo's most underserved neighborhood. Three years later, a patient pharmacy was opened in the lower level of that site.
After a significant capital campaign and community effort, a brand new 41,000 square foot clinic at 300 Colorado Avenue opened in November 2009. This state-of-the-art facility's footprint was further expanded in 2014, adding 7,000 additional square feet and boasting an additional patient capacity of 10,000+ over the next decade.
Now, with the Park Hill facility at capacity, PCHC looks to further expand its presence on Pueblo's East side. Property was acquired in early 2019 at East 8th Street and Lacrosse Avenue. In October of 2020, PCHC officially broke ground and began the construction of a $24M, state-of-the art, net-zero energy medical facility. This will be the largest investment in Pueblo's east side neighborhood in decades and enable capacity to increase by 5,000 new patients over the next ten years.
