The Care Coordination program of SJBPH is a function that supports information-sharing across providers, patients, types and levels of service, sites and time frames. Care Coordination is most needed by those who have multiple needs that cannot be met by a single clinician or by a single clinical organization, and which are ongoing, with their mix and intensity subject to change over time.

Listed below are other programs and community organizations that can provide assistance:
The Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (HCP) nurse provides free services for clients and their families who live in La Plata and Archuleta counties. These children, aged 0-21, have needs beyond what is typical, for physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional conditions.
The nurse care coordinator connects families with information and resources needed to manage their child’s health care. This may include access to specialty care, planning for life transitions, communicating across the health care team, and finding local resources and supports. Care coordination can look like information and a referral, or be a more in-depth assistance in developing a plan of care that identifies and prioritizes the needs of the family.
For information or to request services, reach out to the HCP Nurse at 970.335.2067.
