Simply put, integrated care recognizes that patients are best served when health care providers treat the whole person - not just a single symptom or condition.
At Marillac Clinic we understand that stress and other psychological problems can impact one's health. In turn, physical ailments can impact one's mental well-being. Treating both together makes a successful outcome much more likely.
This approach has been developed over the last several years at Marillac and has become the standard for the highest quality of care across the country. That standard is available to you at Marillac Clinic.
Marillac's staff of dedicated and caring professionals treat the whole person, not just an isolated symptom. Marillac's philosophy of Integrated Care has been recognized nationwide as a 'best practice' model. Increasing numbers of physicians and clinics are employing some of the innovative approaches developed at Marillac over the last several years. Read more: Mental Health
Karla, Patient Navigator
When a condition is diagnosed that falls outside the expertise of the doctors and health care professionals on staff at the clinic, more than 100 local referral specialists in practically every discipline will see Marillac patients at a dramatically reduced rate. It's another example of how working together, the local medical community is helping to address the growing national problem of access to health care.
Outreach and Preventive Care
Unfortunately, most people without insurance tend to wait until they are more seriously ill before seeking treatment. Such delays make it more difficult and more expensive to restore health and/or manage chronic conditions. Marillac Clinic focuses on early intervention, education and outreach in order to interrupt this cycle. This pro-active approach empowers patients to become full partners in creating a culture of healthy habits and lifestyles. Healthy individuals make for healthy families. Healthy families make for a healthier community. Good health helps our patients stay productive at work, at school and at home. Marillac administers two important preventive cancer screening programs: Women's Wellness Connection for free paps and mammograms for low-income, uninsured women and the Colorado Colorectal Screening Program for free FIT kits and colonoscopies for eligible individuals. Our Patient Navigators can help patients schedule these important preventive care screenings.
Additionally, additional outreach is provided at the Catholic Outreach Day Center and Homeward Bound of the Grand Valley. A medical provider and social worker provide medical and mental health services to the homeless clients at the Day Center one day per week and at Homeward Bound every other week. For more information contact 298-1782 or for the Day Center, visit catholicoutreach.org.
