Peak Vista community health centers has now completed the first phase of their "Opening Doors to Healthcare Access" community benefit initiative.
The occasion was marked Tuesday with a ribbon cutting at Peak Vista's health center at 2828 International Circle in Colorado Springs.
Since 2007, the initiative and Peak Vista Foundation have raised $9.5 million to renovate and expand the International Circle facility, relocate and expand Peak Vista's Homeless Health Center (now in donated space within the Salvation Army's New Hope Center, 117 W. Rio Grande), and build the new Colorado Springs Senior Health Center.
The newly renovated International Circle facility has expanded its pediatric, dental, enrollment and radiology services. Last year, Peak Vista helped more than 50,000 patients in the Pikes Peak region who would otherwise have a hard time finding access to healthcare services. They estimate they'll add 14,000 more patients with the expanded facilities.
"Access to health care is such an important part of making this a terrific community," said David Lord, Board Chairman of the Peak Vista Foundation.
At least 71 percent of those treated by Peak Vista are at or below the poverty level.
