Valley-Wide and the San Luis Valley Behavioral Health Group have worked closely together to bridge the physical health and the behavioral health services we provide. This integration project to improve access and effectiveness of healthcare services in the San Luis Valley began in 2009 with co-located services in Valley-Wide clinics. It is exciting to expand integrated services through this new model at the Alamosa South Health Center. The core of this approach is a behavioral health consultant working with a primary care provider in a system that supports team-based care. It will provide care coordination and support to individuals in meeting their self-management goals. The behavioral health consultant works with a primary care provider to evaluate the mind-body-behavior connection and provide brief, solution-focused interventions. ASHC offers family medicine care for all, no matter what age. The primary care provider, nurse team and support staff will ensure a pleasant visit and will provide care for your acute, chronic, preventive and reproductive health needs.

Details: In 2008 Valley-Wide Health Systems, Inc. developed the convenient care model and established Convenient Care Community Clinic to give patients and the community an alternative to the local emergency room for acute and non-urgent care needs outside of traditional clinic hours. Convenient Care Community Clinic (CCCC) originated as part of the Sierra Blanca Medical Center, but was later relocated to a separate facility at 1131 Main Street in Alamosa. The CCCC model not only offers patients a convenient option for illnesses outside of regular office hours, for outpatient treatment, minor injuries, and/or acute illness, but also provides better access to walk-in, same day services which are available 7 days a week including holidays. CCCC serves as an alternative to the cost of an emergency room visit for problems on the lower end of the severity spectrum. Visits should be for acute care only and should not replace visits to your Primary Care Provider or regular physician. Refills for chronic medication prescriptions cannot be requested through this clinic. CCCC also offers FREE HIV screening services and a full spectrum of STD testing and treatment in a safe and confidential setting. CCCC does not require that you be a Valley-Wide Health Systems patient, and is open to both the community and to visitors needing services while in the San Luis Valley. After your visit, treatment or screening, our Case Managers can help coordinate follow-up care with your Primary Care Doctor or help you select a Primary Care Provider. CCCC is located within walking distance to both the Adams State University and Trinidad State Junior College Campuses and Walgreens pharmacy. CCCC accepts most insurance plans, but requires that all patients bring their insurance information and/or their insurance card.
