Background Statement

In 1988, Denver Health and Hospital decided to exclude suburban, medically-indigent patients from their facilities. This decision eliminated a major source of affordable medical care for the approximately 20,000 uninsured residents of Arapahoe, Douglas and Elbert counties. In response to this decision, the physicians of the Arapahoe Medical Society created Doctors Care.

Through a network of volunteer physicians, Doctors Care began providing care on a sliding-fee scale, targeting the working poor whose earnings were above the criteria to qualify for Medicaid and other public assistance, but below the level necessary to pay for health care or private health insurance. After the successful establishment of this network, Doctors Care opened a clinic to treat medically-underserved children and young adults. In the 30 years since its founding, Doctors Care has served more than 40,000 low-income residents of South Metro Denver and provided more than $75 million in medical services to individuals who likely had nowhere else to turn for medical help.
