National Million Hearts Initiative Highlights Colorado Health Center

Members of rural populations—which make up 15% of the United States —are at greater risk of dying from heart disease. High blood pressure, smoking, and obesity are more common among rural residents. 
High Plains Community Health Center  (High Plains) is a family practice centered in Lamar, Colorado, that opened in 1995. Surrounded by farms and ranches in the Great Plains, High Plains’ six clinics serve about 9,300 patients per year. Its most remote clinic, 30 miles away from Lamar in Holly, achieved a hypertension control rate of 83%.
Congratulations, High Plains Community Health Center!
