Whether it’s welcoming a new baby, coping with teething or the “terrible two’s,” Healthy Steps provides support for new parents as a free service of Western Colorado Pediatric Associates.
While the visits are typically scheduled with Well-Child check-ups, we also offer home visits, informational materials, access to phone support, and referrals to other community resources.
For more information on this service, contact Cathie Clark, Healthy Steps specialist, at 970-254-2525.
Every young patient between the ages of 6 months and 5 years receives a new age-appropriate book at every Well-Child visit. Parents who read to their children prepare them for success in reading and strengthen the parent-child bond.

A Medical Home
The medical home, also known as the patient-centered medical home (PCMH), is a team-based health care system led by a health care provider that is intended to provide comprehensive and continuous medical care to patients with the goal of obtaining maximized health outcomes. It is an approach to providing comprehensive primary care for children, youth and adults and is intended to allow better access to health care, increase satisfaction with care, and improve health. Care coordination is essential and requires additional resources such as health information technology and appropriately-trained staff to provide coordinated care through team-based models.
Integrated Behavioral Health services are an important part of the care we offer our patients. Because we know that emotional/behavioral issues affect a patient’s physical health, behavioral health clinicians participate in the medical visit to help address those needs in a team-based approach.

Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC)
One of the ways we partner with patients, family members, and caregivers is through our Patient and Family Advisory Council. A Patient and Family Advisory Council is a meeting with both staff and volunteer members. Our volunteer patients and families collaborate with employees (clinical, administrative, and support) to provide guidance on how to improve the patient and family experience. More…
- Patients receive a smart blood pressure device, glucose monitor, or weight scale in the mail at no cost when covered by Medicare.
- Patients take a few readings each week.
- The device will send these readings to the doctor and is monitored weekly.
- If a reading needs attention, patients will receive a call from a health care professional in their doctor’s office.
- The patient will then answer questions to help the doctor understand if there is a health issue present.
- Each month the patient will get a call from a health care professional in the doctor’s office to teach them about care plans.
