Refugee Care is provided at the Logan Center on the Myron Stratton campus, and handles both the intake process as well as medical care for patients with refugee status. With an estimated 150 refugees annually, Peak Vista works with Lutheran Family Services as its community partner in this effort. Coordination between the two agencies includes enrolling patients, reviewing paperwork, identifying appropriate interpretation services, assessing the need for outside evaluations prior to care at Peak Vista, communication with caseworkers and coordination of schedules for family medical visits.
Peak Vista also serves as the point of contact for both the state health department, the University of Denver – Infectious Disease Department, and the El Paso County Department of Health and Environment with regard to the refugee population. In addition, Peak Vista serves as liaison with the state refugee program for completion of all immigration program requirements as per its contract, ensuring all necessary paperwork is forwarded to the state.
