Intermountain Healthcare Awards $250,00 Grant to Tepeyac Community Health Center

The grant will go toward expanding access to primary medical services.

By HFT Staff

Intermountain Healthcare has awarded a $250,000 grant to support  Tepeyac Community Health Center’s project to build a new clinic and expand access to primary medical, dental and behavioral health services for uninsured and underinsured individuals in Denver and surrounding areas. 

The new Tepeyac Community Health Center clinic will triple the number of patients Tepeyac can serve each year. Currently, these patients might not have a primary care provider or might be waiting for an appointment to see a doctor.  

With help of this grant, Tepeyac’s new facility will be co-located with 150 units of affordable housing and include more than 5,000 square feet for fresh food providers. The expansion will quadruple the original facility’s size to 24,500 square feet and result in an increase to the annual patient visit capacity from 20,000 to 37,000. 

The $250,000 grant from Intermountain Saint Joseph’s Hospital will enable the building of a new medical pod with 10 patient visit rooms around the perimeter and offers an open working environment. This area is where the clinical staff will be able to collaborate, share and provide a team-based approach.  

Tepeyac’s expanded facility is expected to open in early 2023.
