"Being a first-time mother at the age of 16 years old has probably been one of the most challenging phases of my life but because of the support I received from the people that surrounded me made things a lot easier. One of those people was Wendy, my nurse from Northwest Colorado Health's Nurse-Family Partnership. During my pregnancy I had so many concerns and once my daughter Vanessa arrived my concerns were even bigger. Wendy, my nurse was there to support me in everything. She provided me with valuable information in every area that I had concerns. Wendy was not only my nurse, but she became a friend and a person I could trust. All of the support helped overcome my fears of being a young first-time mother." - Irene Avitia Perez

"I kept losing more and more teeth until they were pretty much all gone. I started avoiding people because I was embarrassed. I wanted to fix my teeth, but I couldn't afford it. Thankfully, my boss helped me get set up with Northwest Colorado Health and it was wonderful. I got the rest of my teeth pulled and dentures. The first time I looked in the mirror with them on, tears came to my eyes. Now, I don't mind talking to people, and even my overall health is better. Northwest Colorado Health took such great care of me and I am proud of my smile." - Chuck Thompson

Our values:

Access to health is everyone's right

Regardless of their income, race, age, gender, health status, or insurance coverage, everyone deserves the chance to be healthy and well. No one should be denied the opportunity to see a doctor, receive healthcare, or participate in preventive health programs.

We focus on health, not just healthcare

Health and wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do at Northwest Colorado Health. Through our proactive, preventive programs and services, we strive to help people stay healthy and well. While we do treat illness and injury, our goal is for every member of our community to be empowered with the information, tools, and resources they need to live a healthy life.

Compassionate, personalized care improves outcomes

How we deliver healthcare makes a difference to our patients and their health results. We treat everyone with compassion, integrity, and the utmost respect. We take the time to really understand every patient's situation and never pass judgment. By meeting patients where they are with kindness and empathy, we serve as their partners on their health journey.

We deliver only the highest quality programs and services

We take great pride in providing the most advanced and effective programs and services. We hold ourselves to the highest standards to ensure our patients receive exceptional care. As a non-profit organization, we always focus on providing what is best for each patient rather than what makes the most money.

We lead by example

Every day, we strive to model the healthy behaviors we promote to our patients. From eating well and exercising to preventative screenings and regular check-ups, we practice what we preach.
