A grant from the San Miguel County Department of Public Health has allowed Telluride Regional Medical Center (TRMC) to expand access to a wide range of reproductive health services this year. The services, including contraception, treatment and testing are available to adults and teens, and individuals who are uninsured or unable to pay for these services may qualify for free or discounted care.

“We provide a safe space for minors and adults to receive confidential consultations and care,” said Family Nurse Practitioner Emily McGough. “We are grateful to the County for helping us make sure that no one should have to worry about skipping or postponing the care they need just because they don’t have health insurance.”

The grant covers the following reproductive health services offered at the Med Center:

A broad range of contraceptives and contraceptive information including long-acting reversible contraception (LARC).

Education and counseling regarding family planning, family planning methods, children spacing, infertility, sterilization and nutrition.

Testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, HIV/AIDs.

Adolescent counseling.

Clinical follow-up and referral services as needed.

Cervical cancer screening, counseling and follow-up.

TRMC:

Telluride Regional Medical Center provides San Miguel County with a full spectrum of primary care services, including behavioral health, and the region’s only 24-hour emergency and trauma services.

Providers use an evidence-based, patient-centered approach focused on highly coordinated care and long-term, participative relationships.

In recognition of this approach, the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) named Telluride Regional Medical Center a Patient-Centered Medical Home.
