ABOUT ME:

Dr. Loomis has worked with underserved populations her entire career, and is currently the director of Family Medicine at Denver Health, where she is on the management team for Denver Community Health Services, a network of 8 federally qualified health centers serving over 100,000 patients.  She has long had an interest training residents to work in underserved settings, and was founding director of the Denver Health track of the University of Colorado Residency.  She has extensive experience in improving efficiency and quality in the office practice, and has lectured nationally on the topic.  In addition, she has been involved in implementing a variety of programs to improve access to care, or provide enhanced services for needy populations.  These include Title X Family Planning services, a refugee clinic at one of the health centers, and the Nurse Family Partnership home visitation program.   She is also the lead for the CH cancer screening committee, charged with improving cancer screening rates.   In the past year, she has been involved in two initiatives to develop the medical home: The Commonwealth fund’s Safey Net Medical Home Initiative, and the Colorado Health Foundations initiative to develop the Colorado Family Medicine residencies as Medical Homes.
