Sheridan Health Services is a nurse-managed health care clinic that began in 1995 in the Sheridan public schools with providers from the University of Colorado, College of Nursing.
The School-Based Health Center has provided primary care and a comprehensive range of physical, mental, and oral health services to a low-income, diverse, pediatric population.
In October 2010, the University of Colorado received $1.5 million from the Nurse Managed Health Center grant program made available through the Affordable Care Act. This funding has allowed Sheridan Health Services to grow and add adult services. The new Sheridan Health Services clinic, located on the Fort Logan campus, provides primary care, mental health, and substance abuse treatment to Sheridan and surrounding community residents of all ages.
In January of 2012, the Sheridan Clinics and the University of Colorado, College of Nursing joined forces with the University of Colorado, School of Dental Medicine to provide a new service called the CU SmileMaker van. The mobile dental van provides a range of care for low-income patients.
We look forward to continue our service to the community, and thank everyone involved.
