The History of Clínica Tepeyac

April 1993 - A community needs assessment revealed the following priorities:

  • Barriers to health care access – language, cost, available services, etc.
  • Drug/alcohol abuse and teen pregnancy
  • Local residents were at greater risk for chronic diseases – Including diabetes and hypertension

1994 - Clinica Tepeyac became incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization and the first promatora was hired
to provide community health education.

1995 - Clínica opened its doors and began providing healthcare services to the local community. 

1998 - Patient demand soon exceeded the physical capacity of the clinic. 

2002 - The administrative and education staff moved to rented office space to relieve overcrowding in the clinic.

2005 - Clínica began negotiations with Denver Health and Hospitals, the City and County of Denver, and Councilwoman Judy Montero to acquire a former DHH clinic located in north Denver that had been closed since 2003. 

Clínica receives a Community Development Block Grant to purchase the building and raises capital funds for renovations and furnishings.

December 1, 2006 - Clínica Tepeyac moved into its new clinic facility and began seeing patients.
By 2009 Clínica Tepeyac had expanded its clinical services to include the full range of preventive and primary care delivered in a family medicine model.
