About Us

Since 2013, the Chaffee County Health Coalition has been meeting to discuss how to increase collaboration, identify overlap and duplication of services, and work to improve access to health and wellness in Chaffee County. We are grateful for the financial support of the Colorado Trust in getting us started.

The coalition provides a forum for those who have an interest in some aspect of health and wellness, including medical providers, dental providers, mental health providers, local schools, health coaches, members of the county departments of human services and public health, the Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center and local health advocates.
