The primary goal of SWCAHEC is to improve access to quality health care services in our eight county region. One way we accomplish this goal is to increase the number of healthcare providers through our partnership with health professional degree programs on the Front Range to arrange housing and service learning opportunities for health professional students in rural clinical rotations. As a host home, you can help us accomplish this vitally important goal of bringing primary care providers to our region to live work and play.
