Dr. Patrick Page has been practicing comprehensive family medicine in his hometown of Grand Junction since 1983.
He is a founding partner of Western Colorado Physicians Group and was instrumental in the creation of its innovative contributions to Primary Care Partners: Docs on Call, Grand Junction Diagnostics, electronic health record implementation, Quality Health Network, and the Quality Improvement workgroup.
His current academic and clinical role as an adjunct professor for aging studies at Colorado Mesa University led to the funding of the Mesa County Frailty Index Pilot and serves as its principal investigator. This initiative is funded by the Next 50 Foundation. It has been approved as a quality improvement by the CMU institutional review board.
Self-taught in Spanish by immersion while living and traveling in Mexico, Columbia, and a Puerto Rican neighborhood in Brooklyn during residency, he is conversant in medical care and counseling terminology, but he is not a medical translator.
As he migrates from part-time practice to consulting in frailty, Dr. Page aims to spend more time skiing, mountain biking, golfing, farming or fishing, while continuing to advocate for quality improvement leadership by family physicians.
Since the death of his wife, Ronna Capra in 2019, he intends to champion the essential role of caregivers for the medically vulnerable.
Owner physician since 1998
