What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Sunrise Community Health is a community-based and patient-directed organization that delivers comprehensive, culturally competent, high-quality primary health care services to the community’s most vulnerable individuals and families - including people experiencing homelessness, agricultural workers, and the Nation’s veterans. We integrate access to pharmacy, mental health, substance use disorder, and oral health services in areas where economic, geographic, or cultural barriers limit access to affordable health care services. We also offer supportive services such as health education, translation, and transportation that promote access to health care, and we provide services regardless of patients’ ability to pay and charge for services on a sliding fee scale. Ultimately, Sunrise’s primary mission is to deliver affordable access to quality health care for all.

• Provide 100% access to primary medical, behavioral, and oral health care for all that builds upon wellness & prevention.

• Expand workforce through Educational Health Center activities.

• Explore accreditation opportunities (i.e. JCAHO and AAAHC).

Our family medicine, pediatric, prenatal, dental, and school-based health centers are health care homes for nearly 42,000 people in northeastern Colorado who are underserved by the health care system. Sunrise’s 12 service sites are well-placed in the community, focusing on areas of high need and within easy reach of public transportation or major streets and highways. They are well-designed, offering modern equipment and a welcoming atmosphere. Sunrise has 9 clinics located in Greeley and Evans (Weld County) and 3 clinics located in Loveland (Larimer County) that offer comprehensive, quality, and affordable medical, dental, optometry, and behavioral health services, including on-site laboratory, radiology, pharmacy, and patient education services. Our team of 420 employees contains 59 clinicians, including MD/DOs, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, dentists, hygienists, and pharmacists, and work together with a team of administrative and support staff.

In 2019, Sunrise supported the health of 41,972 patients who are underserved by the health care system; 91% lived at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), 45% lived at or below 100% of FPL, 26% were uninsured, and 61% were on public insurance. Also, Sunrise served patients from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, including 58% who were Latino/Hispanic and 43% who spoke a different language than English as their primary language.

As a Federally Qualified Health Center, we provide services regardless of a patient’s ability to pay by screening patients for eligibility for public funded programs or private insurance and by offering a sliding fee scale and payment plans. Sunrise is a recognized leader in integrated care, advanced Health Information Technology (HIT), safety net collaborations, and professional health education. In addition, Sunrise co-founded the North Colorado Health Alliance, a community collaboration focusing on low-income, under and uninsured people within our service area. Partners include community health organizations, public health departments, hospitals, behavioral health agencies, specialists, private foundations, educational organizations, county commissioners, managed care organizations, and county social services. Key collaborations focus on integrated service expansion, shared HIT infrastructure, community health improvement, regional accountable care activities, and system accountability and efficiencies. Sunrise is also engaged in health policy and advocacy efforts at the state and federal levels and actively participates in numerous healthcare commissions, committees, and organizations. Sunrise administers numerous state, federal, and private grants and programs, and manages 20-25 grants annually that comprise 10-15% of our overall budget.

Sunrise Community Health regularly ranks among the best health centers for quality at both state and national levels. At the state level, Sunrise regularly meets or exceeds all benchmarks for clinical and cost measures; in 2019, Sunrise exceeded all state benchmarks for clinical quality across Colorado Community Health Centers. For the sixth year in a row, Sunrise Community Health also received multiple awards for the quality of its services at the national level. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) – the department with oversight of the Health Center Program - recognized Sunrise with the prestigious Gold Level Health Center Quality Leader award, placing Sunrise in the top 10% among all health centers in the nation for clinical quality measures; nearly all quality measures rank among the top 1st and 2nd quartiles nationally.

For 2020-21, all six of Sunrise’s eligible sites have been recognized as Patient-Centered Medical Homes — the highest level of recognition — by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). The Patient-Centered Medical Home model puts patients at the center of care, where patients and the clinical team build relationships that lead to improved quality, a better patient experience, and reduced health care costs. Sunrise has sustained this recognition for all its eligible clinic sites since 2012.

Together, these awards underscore Sunrise’s strong track record of excellence.
