Climax Contributes $500,000 to Found Community Health Center

The Freeport-McMoRan Foundation and Climax Molybdenum Company Henderson Operations have been working closely with Clear Creek County over the past few years to find a way to bring easily accessible and locally available healthcare to the community and surrounding counties. In October, the Freeport-McMoRan Foundation made a $500,000 commitment to help establish the Collaborative Care Center in Idaho Springs.

The Collaborative Care Center will house Public Health and Human Services, primary medical care, mental and behavioral health, and veterans services to ensure that local residents have the opportunity to access a range of care and/or apply for and receive government assistance within one central location. Government and medical professionals will provide a team-based approach to health care services and help address the social determinants of health that prevent many rural residents from receiving the health care services they need.

There was a virtual groundbreaking for the Collaborative Care Center in Idaho Springs on October 16th.
