Marillac Clinic Celebrates Safety Net Clinic Week

Safety Net Clinic Week - Aug 19-23, 2013

In an effort to raise awareness of Colorado's health care safety net providers, MARILLAC CLINIC is participating in the fourth annual Safety Net Clinic Week, August 19-23, 2013. Sponsored by ClinicNET & the Colorado Rural Health Center, the week is devoted to educating the public and policy makers about these vitally important health care clinics - Community Safety Net Clinics (CSNCs) and federally certified Rural Health Clinics (RHCs).

There are currently 45 identified CSNCs, including MARILLAC CLINIC in Colorado; they are free clinics, community clinics, residency clinics, and select private practices. They provide health care services to low-income, uninsured and underinsured Colorado residents. Colorado has 50 federally certified RHCs that provide health care in some of the most rural and remote areas of Colorado. Annually, these clinics collectively provide an estimated 750,000 visits to approximately 300,000 patients.
