Denver Health and Chanda Center For Health Partner to Help Patients With Physical Disabilities
September 17, 2019
A new primary care clinic partnership with the Chanda Center for Health is allowing Denver Health to serve adults with lifelong disabilities better than ever before.
On Tuesday, some of our community health services staff, board members and leaders toured the Chanda Center for Health in Lakewood. At the 6,000 square-foot facility, adults with long-term disabilities from spinal cord injuries, brain trauma, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis and Spina Bifida can now receive primary care from Denver Health providers in a space that's tailored to their needs. The Center provides patients with other healing services including acupuncture, massage and yoga.
In the clinic's two-months of operation, Denver Health has already begun caring for 40 new patients and is bridging a gap in care.
Chanda Clinic also empowers patients to be more proactive in their preventive care, which reduces unnecessary visits to the Emergency Department.
