SWCAHEC was created to address the healthcare professional shortages in Southwestern Colorado and we use a pipelining model to accomplish this goal.
• We believe in a comprehensive approach to addressing the health issues in our rural and underserved region.
• We provide local opportunities to educate about emerging health issues, innovative practice techniques, and the most current best practices in healthcare and community health.
• We believe that supporting a healthcare workforce is a process, and with each step, we are strengthening the next step.
