Mission and vision
The mission of the partnership is to develop a regional network of care for Northwest Colorado to include oral health, behavioral health, health promotion, disease prevention, chronic disease management, and acute care for all age groups.
Northwest Colorado Community Health Partnership was formed in 2005 in response to a lack of health care services for low income and underinsured/uninsured residents in the region. Over the next eight years, years, the primary focus became Moffat and Routt Counties. In late 2013, NCCHP officially expanded the scope to include Grand, Jackson, and Rio Blanco counties.
