Patient Advocate

We want your experiences at Pueblo Community Health Center to meet your needs. You can help us give you better service by telling us when you have a problem or complaint. There are "Comment Cards" in each reception area.

You can voice a concern to any staff member. If the staff member you speak with cannot solve your problem, that staff member will refer you to the Patient Advocate.

The Patient Advocate will fill out an internal Client Complaint Report Form. This form will be given to the manager of the department or departments involved with the complaint. The manager may contact you to discuss and resolve your problem or complaint.

If you are not satisfied with the solution, you may ask to take your complaint to a higher level. Pueblo Community Health Center's Chief Executive Officer is the highest level of appeal. The CEO's decision will be final.
