CO: A Patient Applauds Her Health Center

By: Beau Boughamer

Ending the week with a letter that reminds us that the great work health centers are doing truly makes a difference in people’s lives.

The Craig Daily Press in Colorado ran a letter to the editor from a patient who says Northwest Community Health Center provides “an invaluable service to the community.”

Just like many people, I was struggling to find affordable health care…. It was a very bad situation, until I met Gisela Garrison, director of the Northwest Community Health Center.


It has been fantastic health care; they treat the symptoms, but make sure patients are educated, to prevent future illnesses.  I recommend the Commun­ity Health Center to all who are in the same situation I was before: hoping to not get sick.  Thank you, NWCHC, for an invaluable service to the community.

  1. I know Gisela through our state association, CCHN, and her passion and drive are fantastic. I think that Colorado has an impressive system of CHCs that really make a difference in our communities and NWCHC is a sterling example!
