Pueblo Community Health Center CEO Presented with Community Health Award
(Pueblo, CO, March 11, 2022) – On Wednesday, March 9, 2022, in the virtual Colorado Community Health Network 2022 Policy and Issues Forum, Donald Moore, Chief Executive Officer of Pueblo Community Health Center (PCHC) was presented with the 2022 Stanley J. Brasher Community Health Gratitude Award.
Moore has been a member of the PCHC team since 1999, serving as Chief Operating Officer until 2009 when he was promoted to CEO. He has been a life-long advocate for Colorado’s most vulnerable populations and has been working in safety-net clinics for nearly 30 years. Moore has created and grown important partnerships within his community and is a well-known figure and advocate for residents in Pueblo County and beyond.
The 2022 Stanley J. Brasher Community Health Gratitude Award was created and named in honor of Jerry Brasher, former CEO of Salud Family Health Centers and one of CCHN’s founders. The award is given to a CHC executive who has worked at a CHC for ten or more years, has maintained excellent relationships with their state and national legislators, and has done something extraordinary as it relates to CCHN’s priorities during their career.
Moore has been the Chair of CCHN’s Public Affairs Committee since 2018. Through his thorough preparation and dedication to CCHN’s Public Affairs Priorities, he has helped guide the committee to be more thoughtful, strategic, and efficient.
Committed to understanding and advocating for the underserved, Moore is thoughtful about how legislation and regulation could help or harm them. He deeply understands the importance of advocacy and takes great care to personalize his efforts. He goes above and beyond to create lasting relationships with his elected officials.
Alice Steiner, Senior Manager of Policy & Advocacy at CCHN said of Moore: “His attention to detail and understanding of its impact on the bigger picture really helps make our job at CCHN easier. He is an incredibly thoughtful leader and is always going the extra mile when it comes to advocacy.”
Pueblo Community Health Center’s mission has been the same since 1983: To provide primary health care to those in need. In 2021, over 22,000 patients received care at a PCHC facility.
