Mission Statement

The mission of the South Metro Health Alliance is to unite the community for better access to health care for all.

Description

The South Metro Health Alliance (SMHA) is an alliance of organizations who serve the uninsured and underinsured population in Arapahoe & Douglas counties of Colorado (with the exception of Aurora). SMHA convenes these organizations so they can work together through networking, sharing of resources and data, and taking action to help gain better access to health care for all in our community.

The South Metro Health Alliance grew out of the work of the Littleton Immigrant Integration Initiative (LI3). This initiative, which was funded by The Colorado Trust, included a Health and Wellness Program which brought together a wide range of physical, behavioral and dental health providers from 2006 to 2009.

The SMHA was formed in 2009 by providers who wanted to continue and expand the key components of the Health and Wellness Program.

In 2010, The Colorado Health Foundation provided funding for the SMHA to undertake a strategic planning process to clarify the Alliance’s future direction. In 2011, the SMHA was honored to receive an implementation grant of $175,000 from the Foundation.

Members of SMHA now include organizations who help to serve the uninsured and underinsured population of Arapahoe and Douglas counties of Colorado. Our Members comprise clinical service providers, community-based organizations, health & wellness educators, and partners.

MISSION

To unite the community for better access to health care for all.

GOALS
  • Organize and advocate for improved health outcomes for the vulnerable patient population.
  • Engage our community to promote access to care.

Our vision is for the South Metro Health Alliance to be the convener of our community to address the changing landscape of health care.

Community will be at the center of our work. The SMHA will be the go-to resource for all health and community organizations that seek to increase access to quality care and health outcomes, particularly for vulnerable patients.

The SMHA will ensure that there is no "wrong door" for people seeking care by helping health care providers understand the needs of the vulnerable patient population and the resources available to treat the whole person.
