The nonprofit clinic will be the first of its kind for people with long-term physical disabilities
DENVER – Hensel Phelps Construction Co., one of the nation’s largest general contractors and construction managers, is donating its general contractor services for construction of the Chanda Plan Foundation Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) for people with long-term physical disabilities. Construction will start in July, with the clinic expected to open in January 2017.
The 6,000-square-foot Medical Home, located in Lakewood, Colorado, will provide a single point of service for the health needs of people with long-term physical disabilities. This holistic, person-centered approach will include a primary care provider, nutrition and mental health counseling in addition to adaptive yoga, massage, chiropractic and acupuncture. The Chanda Plan will be the nation’s first patient-centered medical home specializing in long-term physical disabilities with all of these services under one roof.
“This project would not be possible without the generosity of Hensel Phelps. Every dollar we save on construction is a dollar we can put directly toward helping persons with disabilities,” says Chanda Plan Foundation Executive Director Chanda Hinton-Leichtle. “We’re not just building a health center. We’re building a completely new model of care for people with long-term physical disabilities, dramatically improving their quality of life and increasing their ability to engage in work, community and other activities.”
