Our Mission: Doctors Care provides access to affordable health care, through a coalition of health care providers, to the medically underserved in South Metro Denver.
Located in Littleton, Colorado, Doctors Care is a nonprofit organization that helps underserved children, adults and families receive the medical attention they need. Our dedicated board, staff, and partners have served countless uninsured or underinsured patients since 1988, and continue to watch individual lives transform because of the work we do.
What We DoDoctors Care offers medical service in two unique ways:
- The Doctors Care Clinic operates five days per week providing sick- and well-care visits to children and young adults age 30 and under who need to be seen onsite by a physician assistant or volunteer physician. Our clinic accepts patients with Medicaid, CHP+, the Doctors Care Sliding-Fee-Scale and those who are uninsured for a low flat rate. For more information about our clinic, click here.
- Uninsured patients of any age may enroll in the Doctors Care Sliding-Fee-Scale Program, where patients are assigned to physicians in the community who have agreed to volunteer their medical expertise. Nearly 1000 primary and specialty care physicians in 95 different specialties including surgery, neurology, cardiology and many more comprise the volunteer network. Additionally, six major inpatient medical centers in South Metro Denver (Swedish Medical Center, Porter Adventist Hospital, Littleton Adventist Hospital, Sky Ridge Medical Center, Parker Adventist Hospital and Castle Rock Adventist Health Campus) and their respective laboratories and pharmacies participate by making services available and affordable to Doctors Care patients enrolled in this program. For more information about the sliding-fee-scale program, click here.
In addition, any patient who utilizes either the Doctors Care Clinic or the Sliding-Fee-Scale Program may access mental health services onsite. Counseling and psychiatric medication management are both available, and our mental health providers coordinate care with primary care providers to ensure integrated care for all patients.
