Open since 2018, the new Lafayette Medical and Dental Clinic has a current staff of 45 providing high-quality health care to individuals and families in our community, at a price they can afford. https://youtu.be/Gu36KckBKRs GROWING TOGETHER Boulder County's population has grown tremendously since 1977 when Clinica Family Health first opened its doors in Lafayette. Our community's become very rich—and very poor. Poverty and wealth are not spread evenly across the residents of our community. And the gap between top-earners and families with children living in poverty is steadily increasing. In 2000, 7% of the county’s families with children were living in poverty. That grew to 11% by 2013. The poverty rate for Latino children grew from a dismal 23% in 2000 to 39% in 2013—higher than the U.S. poverty rate for Latino children. Unfortunately, costs for housing, food, transportation and healthcare are growing faster than incomes for lower income households, putting a big strain on family budgets. BOULDER COUNTY NEEDS MORE AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE That's where Clinica Family Health comes in. For over 40 years, we've been providing affordable healthcare for children and adults. As a community health center, our doors are open to everyone: families and individuals, blue collar workers, professionals, and the homeless. We care for those who are uninsured, on Medicaid, Medicare and folks who have private insurance. That's why we opened our new, larger clinic with expanded services!
Open since 2018, the new Administration Building in Lafayette has a current staff of 60 providing support services for our system of 6 medical 3 dental clinics. Our administrative staff provides oversight of clinic operations, human resources, information technology, billing and finance, population health, clinical leadership, and development.
