DENVER – The Chanda Plan Foundation has received a $500,000 Colorado Health Foundation grant for capital support of a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH).
The PCMH, slated to open this year 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 physician, nutrition and mental health counseling in addition to adaptive yoga, massage, chiropractic and acupuncture.
“We’re grateful to the Colorado Health Foundation for championing our efforts to create the very first Patient Centered Medical Home for persons with long-term physical disabilities in Colorado,” says Chanda Hinton-Leichtle, Chanda Plan founder and executive director. “The Medical Home will make a lasting impact for an underserved population, dramatically improving the quality of life for people living with disabilities by providing them with comprehensive, person-centered primary care and wellness services and improving their ability to engage in work, community and other activities.”
