(Pueblo, CO, May 29, 2020) – Pueblo Community Health Center (PCHC) was recently awarded $25,000 of grant funding by the Colorado COVID Relief Fund to help respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“Pueblo Community Health Center has remained open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic response, and all of the 31,000 patients who trust us for their primary care needs have access. We are open to new patients as well when someone needs care. We are grateful for the Colorado COVID-19 Relief funding. We are using it to make sure Puebloans have access to care,” said Donald Moore, PCHC CEO.

At PCHC, we are seeing firsthand the urgent need to provide quality health care to those in need in our community, which has included telehealth. Telehealth consists of providers having visits over the phone or with the addition of video to continue to meet the needs of our patients.

Despite the challenges all are facing, PCHC remains fully committed to its mission and the community of Pueblo. To learn more about PCHC, become a patient, or to schedule an appointment, please call 719-543-8711 or visit www.pueblochc.org.
