Tri-Lakes Cares

Medical Assistance

Our Neighborhood Nurse Center

We are proud to partner with CommonSpirit’s Health Services to offer consultations with an onsite Faith Community Nurse for uninsured and under-insured patients in northern El Paso County. We are one of three community outreach sites offering this service where clients can schedule an appointment to be seen for minor medical issues or a compassionate listening ear.

The physical, emotional and spiritual health of an individual is assessed by the Nurse, and she can coach individuals through health issues that may have a foundational spiritual or social need underlying a medical need.
