Health Care

This department is responsible for referring survivors and families to health care providers in the community. Currently, Center for Immigrants has a collaborative agreement with Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital and other caregivers which allows our participants to receive greatly-discounted care at three of their clinics: the Caritas Clinic for internal medicine and the Bruner Family Medicine clinic for children, pregnant women, and adults through referrals as per need basis. We may also refer participants to the Denver Health and other Hospitals.

All these programs assure that our participants, who are often newly arrived in Colorado and suffering from ailments due to trauma and years of medical neglect to receive prompt and quality care. Our health care program benefits from consultation from Dr. Sarah Combs (PhD), a registered nurse and public health expert whose specialty is the care of torture survivors and traumatized immigrants with a combined of near 9 years of experience of providing care.
