The Sam Sandos Westside Family Health Center in Denver’s Sun Valley neighborhood is celebrating 50 years of keeping patients healthy in 2018. Rick Delgado is the Family Health Center’s second and longest-serving administrator, starting his career in 1968 in Westside’s original building at 10th Ave. and Federal Blvd. Delgado played a major role in the move to its current location, a block north at 11th Ave. and Federal Blvd. Delgado retired in 1997 after nearly 30 years.

In this short video, we celebrate 50 years serving our community as Delgado discusses the challenges and successes at Westside, especially through outreach to the Spanish-speaking community in the adjacent neighborhoods.

In this video, Delgado explains the colorful mural that greets patients as they walk in the doors at Westside.
