Metro Community Provider Network Opens Doors at New North Aurora Family Health Services Campus.

New Facility Offers Medical and Dental Services to Medically Underserved and Uninsured Patients

AURORA, Colo. -- Metro Community Provider Network (MCPN) today opened the doors of its new North Aurora Family Health Service facility located at 33rd and Peoria just north of the Anschutz Medical Campus and began providing services to patients.

The new North Aurora campus offers a variety of health and wellness services to patients including internal medicine, prenatal care, dental care, mental health care, geriatric care, diabetes care, a pharmacy, prevention programs, translation services and care coordination. The North Aurora campus also offers health education with a focus on diabetes education, adolescent health services, infant mortality reduction programs, homeless outreach, and dental services through its nine operatories.

One of the first MCPN patients to be seen at the North Aurora Family Health Service site was Anthony Clark who came in for a follow-up dental appointment. "A few weeks ago I had a dental abscess and needed to have a couple of teeth pulled," said Clark. "I didn't have the necessary insurance coverage, so I am really thankful that MCPN was able to work with me so that I could receive the dental treatment," added Clark, "without MCPN I'd probably still be in a lot of pain."

With the opening of the new North Aurora Family Health Services site, MPCN will boast three major campuses in Aurora, bringing the best quality medical and dental care to underserved families in the area.

"With the opening of the North Aurora Family Health Services campus, we will be able to provide service to over 22,000 patients per year, more than double the capacity of our old facilities," remarked MCPN President and CEO, David Myers. "We are very confident that the opening of this facility will help reduce the number of medically underserved in Colorado."
