Inner City Health Center (ICHC) provides comprehensive, compassionate and accessible health care for all in one convenient location. For over 30 years, ICHC has been a vital resource to the metro-Denver community serving approximately 6,500 underinsured and uninsured patients annually. We use a comprehensive care model that integrates medical, dental and counseling services to address the needs of the whole person and whole family. Today, just as it was at its creation, ICHC continues to serve those who are in the most need with respect and compassion.
In the details...
Rosalie, her husband, a construction worker, and 13 year-old son have no insurance and are undocumented from Mexico. Her five year-old daughter is an American citizen and has Medicaid. Rosalie and her family came to Inner City Health Center (ICHC) when Rosalie discovered she was pregnant and her family needed health care. ICHC was there to serve them with compassion and respect, regardless of their citizenship or insurance status. Rosalie’s son received a sports physical, her daughter received a well-child visit, and husband received a dental exam and cleaning. Rosalie received all her pre-natal care at ICHC and delivered a healthy baby boy at Denver Health, where ICHC has a working relationship. ICHC Medicaid specialist, Arlene, helped Rosalie secure emergency Medicaid as well as financial assistance for her entire family. Rosalie says coming to ICHC give her a feeling of “joy, peace and love.” Rosalie and her new baby continue to receive pediatric care. Rosalie and her family have made ICHC their health care home.
