Sunrise Community Health
Sunrise searching for a VISTA candidate who is interested in improving the health and wellness of uninsured and under insured individuals. The assignment will focus on building programs that will enhance the current chronic disease management and prevention program, educate patients about Sunrise services, and research resources that will benefit our patients. Sunrise Community Health began in 1973 as a migrant health clinic. Today, our family medicine, pediatric, prenatal, dental, and school-based health centers are health care homes for more than 34,000 people in northeastern Colorado. We are a private, non-profit 501c3 supported in part by community health center funding through the Bureau of Primary Health Care. Sunrise offers comprehensive, quality, and affordable medical, dental, and behavioral health services including on-site laboratory, radiology, pharmacy, and patient education services. All services are offered to people in need regardless of their ability to pay. Sunrise is a recognized leader in integrated care, advanced Health Information Technology (HIT), safety net collaborations, and professional health education. In addition, Sunrise co-founded the North Colorado Health Alliance, a community collaboration focusing on the low-income, under and uninsured people within our service area. Partners include community health, public health, hospital, behavioral health, specialists, local foundations, education, county commissioners, managed care organization, and county social services. Collaborations focus on integrated service expansion; shared HIT infrastructure; workforce development; community health improvement; regional accountable care activities; and system accountability and efficiencies. Our mission is “Supporting the health of individuals, families and our community through affordable, quality care and education”. We strongly believe that healthy people equal healthy communities.
